- HEALTH TRACKER
I have been educating myself with these forums. Getting a feel for what to expect when I get my surgery date and take the plunge. I am praying I can get my surgery before my children's school resumes in late Aug. I am a stay at home Mom and my husband works the oilfields, so he is working like 16-18 hours a day on average and out of town for the week sometimes. Just wondering...... I haven't seen a lot of posts about women who have small children and how after the surgery they coped. I know that there will a limited amount of things that I will be able to do post- op. Like no lifting, stretching, etc. How long did you have to wait to lift and resume normal duties like, bending to load the dishwasher, laundry, sweep floor etc.? I have my mother who can help me with my children if I get the surgery this summer ( she works @ a school, so is out for summer, as well.) I also can rely on my husband for some things. But, I guess I'm having a hard time figuring out how everything will get done. I am bit of a control freak when it comes to getting things done. It's a little overwhelming thinking about the soreness, sickness, constant food planning, pain and kids and dogs and cats & taking care of everything. LOL!!! Please tell me how you managed everything with your children. Just want to know what to expect!!!
BTW, I have 2 great little girls. Oldest is almost 8yrs and youngest is 5 yrs. So I know my oldest can help with some things. Thanks for you suggestions and insight on this.!
