A while back, I bought this from Amazon:You have an ADA chair height toilet, I used a toilet from like the hospitals have which goes over the toilet and is adjustable for height. You can put your legs any way you want as long as you don't force them or twist them. You say lateral, is you scar on the side? Wherever the scar is would be the place they rotated your femur head to so they could remove it and drive the implant in. That is the direction your muscles would be the weakest and most prone to dislocate in which is the biggest thing you don't want to do.
20 mins of icing wouldn't have cut it for me. I had a machine and if I wasn't moving it was on me. Ice is the best for getting comfortable.

Yes, scar is completely on side. Ice on/off every 20 minutes.
Thanks for your reply.
