After waiting several weeks, I finally got word today that my insurance company pre-approved my surgery! I'm scheduled for December 16th and I have a couple questions about the recovery period for those of you who have been through this.
First of all, here is my proposed schedule: Surgery on 12/16 and out of work through Christmas. The 4-day week after Christmas I plan to work from home (computer job) and then I'll return to my 45-minute commute to the office after New Year's weekend.
So for those of you who have been through it does that sound like a reasonable amount of time for recovery (assuming no crazy complications)? Any thoughts about how I'll feel on Christmas (9 days post-op)? Do you think I will still be bedridden or will I be up and about and able to participate in Christmas morning with my little ones (5 and 3 years old).
My loving, amazing, fabulous husband is a stay-at-home Dad so he will be around 24 x 7 for the kids and to help me recover. Any advice for him?
Thanks for anyone who responds!
