Hi All, I've visited here a couple of times and lurked around. It seems to have soo much information that I wasn't finding elsewhere. I'm getting down to the wire. Been doing all the prep exercises for a left THR on Dec 10th. Think I have most everything I'll need. Still in a mental debate on if I need to get/rent a recliner. Don't own one. The article about what to look for was interesting and useful. I can easily shift to standing with the left leg completely immobilized. I'm only 5'1½" so it's hard to find furniture too low. Also, don't think I'd need or use the lift factor. Any opinions - please share. How do you deal with pain pre-surgery with only acetaminophen and ice? I have to stop all else tomorrow. It's never been much help in the past... and of course, I have clients I have to see on Tuesday and Thursday.
