Recovery, care-giving time after surgery?


Question from mcgrath: I'm going to have a lumpectomy for DCIS in a couple of weeks. How long (on the average) will it take to heal? How long will my husband have to take care of me?
Answers - Rosalind Kleban, L.C.S.W. The recovery from this surgery will be very quick and complete. In this situation there is often no concrete job for the caregiver, other than to be loving and supportive.
Marc Silver Don't tell your husband I said this, but if there are any chores that you always wanted him to do, now's the time!
