  • I can help cause I add a full one. I used to have to take care of my girls on my hands and knees cause in so much pain. But since having the surgury things are a whole lot better. You will be sore and will not be able to lift and drive until you can apply pressure to the brake but otherwise smooth sailing. Just keep ice packs or even heat pads if in pain to much. along with a pain reliver. After words you should feel so much better than you do now. Just listen to your doctor and things will go fine. Take care.

  • thanks so much for answering me. this is all scary to me but being a heart patient, you would think i would be use to having surgeries, drs, needles and things like that but sadly, i'm not... so scared and worried about it.
