Hi all! I am scheduled to have a disc replacement surgery in less than two weeks and when I first scheduled it, the doc said my time off work would be about a week and not lifting up my two toddlers would be around 2-3 weeks. That sounded not awesome but doable.
I went to a pre-op class about the surgery and I was told many different things, as in lifting restrictions would be 6-12 weeks and out of work for 2-4 weeks. None of these things are feasible for me with two small children and a puppy and no help other than my husband. I am so nervous now to have this surgery and am considering cancelling it. Can anyone speak to the REAL recovery time for a disc replacement please? I am desperate for help!
