I'm bringing @grandmar @bernese53 @sandytoes14 @hopekeeper and @james2189 into this discussion as they have experience with disc replacement and/or spinal fusion.

@user_chf56161a, I appreciate your sharing some of the things you have in place before the operation that are thankful to have had during the recovery period:
– a grabber tool to help pick things up
– a toilet riser to raise the toilet seat
– slippery pyjamas

Such great suggestions. I can understand your fear of finishing your pain meds. To help calm your worry, could you call your doctor or pharmacist to discuss pain management options once the 10-day prescription runs out? You still have 2 days of medication, but it would be good to have a plan in place before the weekend.
