Good news of today is I finally got a lap date (after trying to seek help for a decade). Now what me and my family are wondering is how much help I will need and for how long after? I've been told I will definily need complex surgery to remove a section of wall and they suspect stage all four stages (they said I should prepare myself for "sets" of operations) Any how, as my parter will be in full swing of an Opera as well as final year of course deadlines etc. our various members of our families are wanting to take turns being around to help out and keep me company. Only thing is, they'd need to plan ahead, how long will I need them? My consultant said it would probably a longer recovery time than normal maybe (3-6 months) but I've not the best grasp if what normal is and I'm not sure what how long each stage of recovery is or even what level of recovery that 3-6 months is referring to
Also, how long after have you experienced impared movement? There's a conducting course I'd really like to do just under 5-6 weeks after my op....it would require traveling, and free uninhibited movement, think similar to dancing but without the danger of collisions!
Thank you so much in advance to anyone kind enough to spend the time replying....you are all stars!!
