Tips for post op ease and comfort?
This is my first post : ) I am scheduled for DLIF 3 level fusion of L 2-3, 3-4, 4-5 on October 23, 2012. I have not seen any kind of information on here about post surgery and things that will make life a little bit more comfortable once I am home.
One of my biggest concerns is my bed; it is a pillow top mattress and I am afraid it may be difficult to maneuver in after surgery. Has anyone rented a hospital bed post op? If so was it a good choice and how long did you need it?
Can you al please share any and all tips that you found helped you, or in hindsight wish you had thought of prior to getting home? I would like to be be as prepared as I possibly can and want to have everything in place before surgery.
I am a nervous wreck about the surgery and want to eliminate as many surprises as possible!
