From the patient's perspective (and the spouse's) the first week or two
home from the hospital are the worst. It's hard to find a decent sleeping
position, you need lots of help just getting up and down, incision care,
etc. Once you are strong enough to manage somewhat on your own things get
much better pretty quickly.
The surgery takes a lot out of you, but recovery is fairly quick and you
feel so much better once you are several weeks out from the zipper insertion.
Been there, done that.
