Re: Post-ALIF Care-Giver Needs Info
Hi, it sounds like you are a very concerned and giving husband. I had back surgery also and one thing I can think of is a shower chair, so she does not have to get in and out of the tub, or stand too long in the shower, as this can be hard on a person. A nice long robe or gown is easy to get on and walk around in, non slip slipper socks, a stand beside her bed with her meds, a pitcher of water, and anything she may need and not have to get up for constantly. Things for her to keep her mind and hands busy since she will be laid up for awhile. Books, magazines, any crafts she likes to do, movies, and if possible, making sure she gets outside when it is nice out, in the fresh air. That always helps a person recuperate faster. You have probably thought of alot of these, but this is what I can think of right now. Please come back if you have any more concerns.
