Allow for Less Stress During Your Recovery

First, you will want to make sure that you your home is a low-stress space; you will not want to deal with stressful situations during your recovery. Dealing with chores like laundry and vacuuming before your surgery will help to create a clean, enjoyable environment. Also, taking items that you may need down from high shelves is a must, since you will not be able to raise your arms over your head during recovery.

Secondly, you will want to set up a recovery station. This should be close to your bed, like on your bedside table for easy access. Stocking your station with basics like bottled water, tissues, lip balm, your phone charger, the TV remote, magazines, etc. will help to make your recovery much easier. Also, make sure that you have an array of pillows on hand. For three days post-op, you will need to keep yourself propped up at a 45-degree angle, so pillows are a must.

Lastly, remember to secure care for both your children and pets during your recovery period. Since you will not be able to drive or walk your dog during recovery, securing someone to help out with the children and pets is super helpful. Stocking up on easy-to-make foods is also a good idea, since your most likely not going to want to spend much time in the kitchen. Freezing dishes ahead of time is an easy way to feed the whole family.
