I've got a plastic kneeler that is like an upside down seat, which means it has 18 inch high handles on each side (what would be the legs) you use to boost yourself up. I haven't tried to use it yet post op but relied on it hugely preop. Have a lookey loo at your garden center or our friend Amazon. . My garden is my happy place. Sort of garden interruptus this summer though due to recovery. Making the most of what I did manage to get planted before my op. Homemade potato salad again tonight with my freshly dug potatoes.
