Hello Good People
I've only been a member here for a little bit, but can't tell you how much I've learned from all of you, thanks!
Unfortunately (or fortnunately
) I'm single and have been told I am a perfect candidate for disc replacement surgery. I am still waiting to have my initial visit with the surgeon (I've only seen Kaiser's spine specialist to date). Because I'm single, I need to ask my Mom to take care of me once again. Thank God for Mom! I'm pretty independent and hate to imposition anyone, especially her. From your experience, how long do you think she'll have to stay over or be with me for an extended period of time?
From my research, I see the average stay in the hospital is ~4 days, was this true in your case?
How long before you went back to work? I know it varies, depending on the type of work you do. I have a desk job for most of the day...
Thanks for your help!
