Ms.

I just  had transforaminal lumber disc surgery. Because I am on Medicaid they hurried me out, no physical therapy, no medicine. I have no one to take care of me. I cannot bend, clean myself or anything we all take for granted. I can only eat what is ready without preparing. Please advice, I do not want to die in my apartment filthy and alone. There must be some help.

Hi there!

Well, without knowing the relevant clinical details or a detailed clinical evaluation it would be difficult to comment specifically on the situation. I would suggest resting for a few days along with anti-inflammatory medications/ pain killers, if prescribed by your treating doctor. This may be followed by physiotherapy a few (2-4) weeks later to strengthen the back muscles. Meanwhile it is advisable to avoid heavy work. Warm compresses may also be helpful in providing symptomatic relief.
Hope this is helpful.

Take care!
