Surgery: Have a discussion with your doctor and surgeon. They will be glad to go through the surgical procedure including the medications which will receive to lessen your pain. After a period of recuperating you will be able to take care of your daughter. Good luck.

Please help: What kind of surgery? Please be more specific so that we can help you. Also, ask the doctor who is doing the surgery or his nurse for what follow up care you will need and to be specific of what kind of pain/side effects and limitations you will have and how long, so that you can plan on family or friends help you after surgery with babysitting/cooking and taking care of you and your daughter.
