I am having a discectomy (not fusion) L5-S1 on Monday and am preparing. I have bought a grabber, etc, etc. I am going to want to use my computer soon after surgery. What position is best to use the computer? Is sitting up in bed realistic? lying flat on the bed face down? Is there a some sort of table to use in bed i could buy? Appreciate anyone who has been through this offering advice.
Separately, I have heard sitting on an exercise ball is good for keeping good posture. How soon post-op should I start that? Does it put stress on the back?
Thanks for your advice and support!!
