I am going to have a spinal fusion operation (only a couple of vertebrae) and I would love to hear from anyone who has had this op.
As I live on my own I am wondering how I will manage. How mobile will I be? How long before I am able to get out and about? Is there a time limit on not being able to lift things? How do I cover the dressings in the shower as there does not seem to be a commercial covering for my lower spine? How much pain? How do I lay in bed comfortably?
Anything that you could tell me about how you were when you came out of hospital and any tips would be appreciated.
