How long will I need help with kids so I can recover?

I am 4 weeks post-op with a TAH/BSO. I had help with the first week only and it about killed me but I didn't have anyone to help, heck I still need help. I have 3 kids myself an 11 y/o, 3 y/o and 4 month old who weighs 16 1/2 and I have to pick her up constantly. My dh works 3rds so he's no help. I totally understand how you feel. My family all live in another state and my dh's family do as well. As far as friends, they help like going to the store but they don't offer to take my kids! I'm with ya! I know how you feel, I hope you can find someone to help you because believe me it is so very hard with out help!
