Post operation advice
I am due to have hip replacement surgery in mid November and am wondering what preparations I should make at home for the recovery period.
I know everyone is very different but some general tips would be very helpful. I am 63 and have been very active before being slowed down by the arthritis. I hope to get back to regular mountain walking and hopefully some road bike riding. I have read about getting a walking stick with a hooped handle, a raised toilet seat (?) and shoe horn.
What about stairs and general mobility of dressing etc?
I guess the hospital will provide some guidance but any shared experience or tips would be gratefully received.
