Would you consider these procedures if you had no one to help during recovery?

Hello Ladies, Love the forum and the ability to communicate with those who've taken the brave step and undergone the knife! Here's my situation: Jobless with just a few months of savings to rely, but my Dr. thought it might really help if I did upper & lower eyes and dealt with the jowls and neck. I'm a professional and just turned 60. Been out of the workforce for a few years due to taking care of family member, now passed. Now I have no money left, no family, no friends upon which to rely to even ask for help walking my dog. After reading your recovery stories, it sounds a lot more time consuming and the procedures prevents from managing on your own for several weeks. My question is whether I should just go for the best look I can to shave some years with botox & fillers and hope that at some point after I get more financially fit, try to get some time off to get the surgery or bite the bullet now that I have a little time and take the big gamble that I will get a job quickly before I run out of money? It's tough being completely alone. I will have to hire a service just to get to the surgeon's office. What would you do now that you've gone through recovery and know what I will have to face alone? Could you have found a way to prepare in advance and do it without help? Thanks for your consideration. Roxanne60
