Oh! My (previously) aching back!

In seven days I will be having back surgery: laminectomy, fusion, and fixation. Yesterday, I attended the "Back on Track" class that the hospital provides for those about to have surgery. They stressed the BLTPP rules: NO Bending, Leaning, Twisting, Pushing, or Pulling. What are YOUR best tips and tricks (and best kept secrets) for adhering to these rules for my next few months? PLEASE add any suggestions on how to make my life (and my wife's life!) easier during the recovery time. Any and all ideas are welcome! [Yep, I know YANMD, but I hope you have good ideas.]
