New member here, Everyone seems to have good solid information here. I would really love to know what to expect during the weeks after surgery, What I'll be able to do? pain levels, When to start walking again. Any advice or ideas to help that first month go by with any ease at all would be great. Read here about Satin sheets, I guess to move better. Maybe my wife will like them too.

PLEEEEEEEEEASE send all coments, Getting nervous. :O
