Hi BoneSmart Sparklers,
I am ready for my 2nd knee replacement and will be going to rehab for a week. During my first, 3 years ago I went also to rehab and the whole process was very efficient and helpful.
I enjoy preparing for a smooth adventure and pack things like Ear plugs, IPod music, chargers, sleep mask and power strip ext cord.
I have an ice machine, LOVE it and keep Imperial Margarine contains (2) in freezer. Use one or two, displace the water already in the machine and put back in freezer. ALSO I have a small child's bean bag chair and I put it on my Lazy-Girl Chair leg rest and my knee on top to get it above my heart.
I live near Fresno, CA so sandals and shorts, night gowns, sleep shirts are packed. I even moved my bed so I can get out of bed, after Rehap, with my good leg first. Is that what everyone does?
