I have a small list of things I want to get and have in place before my TKR surgery. The list includes a shower stool, walker, ice machine and one of those fancy pillows to elevate the leg without bending it to much. People tell me that Medicare will pay for the equipment, but how in the world does that happen if I order it a few weeks before the surgery (I want to make sure I have it in place and allow for delays.) I don't want to drag home a bunch of stuff the day after my surgery, nor do I want my caregivers to have to figure out which model or size I need. If you have experience with Medicare and TKR, I would appreciate hearing from you.
