Hello All! I’m having my second hip replacement, sorting out what I will need to have on hand post op, and how I’m going to care for myself when discharged. Senior citizen, on oxygen. Moved here a year ago, but due to health issues, haven’t gotten out to meet people. Not religious, no club affiliations. No family here to help, doc says no to rehab or home health, who wouldn’t care for kitties anyhow. Anterior approach planned, so hope to not be restricted as much as years ago when I had left hip done. I’ve been looking for somebody to hire to scoop litter boxes first couple weeks. No luck so far. Fixed income limits what I can pay. I’m struggling with how I am going to care for kitties post-op, scoop litter box. I will have walker with seat for carrying their food dishes, but won’t be able to scoop litter boxes on floor, or place food and water dishes on floor for awhile. How do you guys handle your pet care, when nobody available to assist? Maybe purchase cheap wide patio benches to elevate litter boxes and food dishes temporarily? Thank you! Edit: I simply cannot find where to post surgery date here. RTHR, Scheduled September 16, 2019. I had LTHR almost 25 years ago. Obviously surgical protocol changes, and thankfully so. But why can’t I see these places to post surgery date? I’m using an IPad, if that helps.
