Hi all I had a discectomy l5 s1 on Friday and I just spent my first night at home I wanted to give you a few bits of advice that I wish I had known!
Before leaving hospital get the Physio to teach you to get out of bed on the lowest hospital bed setting! When I got home I was shocked how low my bed was and it was a big difference!
Tip no two by silky sheets they are so easier to move on and where it was taking me up to two hours to get out of bed the silky sheets really help speed the process up
And finally if your a girl get some dry shampoo in your not going to be washing your hair for a while
Hope this helps x Kim
