Does anyone know how to explain this to family? My family isn’t big on researching or even wanting to hear medical descriptions, they want it in simple, lamest terms. I’m at a loss as to how to do that… doesn’t sound right when I do.
Also, how do you get a support group set up in the event you need surgery? I start discussing with a surgeon this week if I need surgery or not. No one in my family can take time off from work, or financially afford to help care for me every day after a surgery like this, and after doing research on the surgery itself, what it entails, and talking to others who have it, they say have a strong support group to help care for you 24/7 until you’ve healed and are able to function on your own again.
How do you get support if your family and friends cannot afford to take time off from work or financially afford to take care of you or hire a nurse to do it for them? Not wanting to go through this all alone, although it already feels like I am. Cannot even find support groups in the area my mother currently resides in.
Any advice (from experience), or guidance will greatly help!
