laminectomy - recovery time?
Can anyone advise ow long a time should I expect until I am able to live independently, make my own meals, feed the cat, etc. after a laminectomy? I know everyone is different, but trying to plan is so stressful when there are no answers..
Also any one have experience hiring short term non-nursing help for a few hours a day, twice a week? Any advice about how to find trustworthy help would be appreciated.
My surgery is in ten days, I plan to stay with my cousin http://www.healthboards.com/boards/images/smilies/angel.gif and her husband the first two weeks, and my elderly mother will stop by and feed and care for my cats. I don't want to be a burden to my family members any longer than I have to be and will be anxious to get home..
Thank you so much for any advice you may offer. It is pretty nerve-racking, wondering how, if any way to prepare further.
