Thank you. I will read it now. I have not been offered any type of class. I do have my husband, retired. He helped me a LOT when I had the arthroscope on this same hip in February. He will put my socks on me, etc. after last night, I'm looking forward to this but I had quite a few good days and was thinking about canceling. I guess not.Hi @Grammy57 One of the first things that comes to mind is a reacher.. and an aide that helps you pull your socks on. Well, unless you live in a warmer climate.
Usually the hospital has a pre op session and goes over some of the things needed, do you know if that is in the works for you? I didn't have this offered to me but it seems most people did.
What helped me the most was this article that I am leaving for you.. Maybe read through it and see what you think.
Recovery Aids: A comprehensive list for hospital and home
Recliner Chairs: Things you need to know if buying one for your recovery
I hope this helps.
