I am scheduled for surgery next Thursday (the 18th) and will be out from work for 2 weeks. As a teacher, it's perfectly coinciding with the end of the year. So, I will get even longer to recover, as needed.
My sister is the one with tons of hospital experience. The only experience I have is giving birth to my 6 year old.
Anyone else go through this? Any suggestions of things to have around for recovery? It sounds like I'll be up and moving to try to feel normal faster. I have a feeling I'll be on the forum a lot, living vicariously through others!
