I posted a couple of weeks back about my situation and fears ahead of my procedure scheduled for next Wednesday.
Thanks for all your lovely responses - I’ve learnt a lot, received some excellent advice, and feeling much less anxious.
I’m posting again to ask for detailed advice re the post op period. I’m aware of the ‘2 weeks (1 doing very little and the 2nd doing just a bit more)’ rule but could do with some advice as to what it actually entails and what plans I should make.
To recap - I’m a single mum of an 11 & a 9 year old. My sister has offered to look after them for the first few days and friends have said they’ll have them to stay as well so we have the first week covered for them.
Will I be ok on my own once I’m out of hospital (they’ve suggested I’ll only be in for one night) or will I need to have someone with me?
I was going to stay at my parents for a few days but my sister in law is due to be induced the day before my op and they’d like to go down and see her and the new baby.
