I had my pre-op visit on Tuesday and everything is set to go for my 2nd hip surgery on April 21st. I was surprised to learn that I will be going home the same day because of Covid. I'm still trying to wrap my head around that, but think it will be okay since I have lots of help at home. I ordered a gel pack for hips on Amazon tonight, and am looking forward to seeing how that will work. I'm wondering if there is a preferred side of the bed to sleep on for ease of getting in and out of bed. I planned to sleep on the same side of the bed as before. (right side, having a left hip replacement). I have a bedside table next to me and chose that side of the bed last time because it was closer to the door and also had more room to maneuver the walker. I pick up my medications tomorrow and have a Covid test on Monday. I'm looking forward to getting the surgery over with and hoping I have a smooth steady recovery like last time.
