Dr. Nelson made sure I understood the surgery, he even drew pictures.

***************************************, I was not prepared for the amount of rest time I would need after this surgery. My restriction was not to lift more that 10-15 lbs. I feel that my after surgery recovery was not fully explained to me, and I would have been better prepared if I would have been told to get some help for around the house for at least the first three weeks.
