Something I have a feeling might be needed is a re-posting of several old posts. Since they are a few years old and I haven’t re-read them lately maybe I will take the time to look for corrections and to add anything that might be interesting. I will do them as links. If you are contemplating having any back surgery then give them a perusal. The first post is about understanding how the word “recovery is misleading. Then the second is a look at the question of what is the percents of recovery given to us as we discuss outcomes with the medical field. Next is about our own expectations of how long it might take. Next is why we have post-op instructions and then the last will be about how to prepare your home recovery room. Which is a favorite post of the readers.
