I just wanted to know a good time frame for me to be post op before my husband has his surgery.  I  don't want my husband to have his if I still will need more recovery time.   We have one six year old daughter. 

Any input would be greatly appreciated

My doctor recommended 6-12 weeks, but we are in our 50's.  Also, we don't have a child to care for.  Check with your doctor.

My husband was five weeks out when I had mine, worked well but we are also in our fifties and empty nesters.

Basically you need to be off any lifting restrictions before he goes in.
