I've printed out the "must haves" list -- thank you! That helps a lot. I've also made an appointment with our inhouse employee health nurse to adjust my work desk for better post-surgery ergonomics. Will probably be ordering a book holder and possibly different keyboard.
I contacted my regular physician and asked for my daily prescriptions (GERD/hypertension) to be filled in liquid form ... I gather swallowing pills will be difficult.
So I think I'm pretty well set... but have a couple of "embarrassing" questions.
For the ladies:
After surgery, was having your period a problem? What about finishing-up after your go to the bathroom? Any suggestions to make it easier?
