My husband is in the Navy and can't get any time off so we will be in different countries when I have my surgery and for most of my recovery. Also all my family and friends live too far away to be able to help (6 hours!). Thankfully my Mum can come up for a while. Initially I was thinking a week but now I'm thinking that's not long enough as once she's gone I'll be totally alone.
i'm having a 35cm simple cyst removed by laparotomy on the 7th July. How long will I be in hospital? What is the follow up care like in terms of hospital appointments etc? The hospital is really hard to get to by public transport (2 busses a day) and obviously I won't be able to drive but if my Mum was here she would be able to drive me. Is there anything I need to be aware of that I should consider?
any help would be appreciated as I'm starting to feel really stressed and alone
