Well I would say set up your recovery room at home to something you will be comfortable with looking at.I purchased all types of pillows with different firmness. I brought brand new bedding for freshness. Also bring your own pillows to the hospital because what they offer isn’t good. Know what medications work for you. I already knew opioids would do me wrong so finding the right pain meds was my biggest issue. Take your time to heal properly.
I would say 8 cdays out that being mentally prepared was the most important to my recovery. I have a low tolerance to to pain and let the dr know that.
It’s a scary surgery and being nervous and scared is only human. Speak to a counselor before and after about your fears. Be your own advocate. Your dr should allow you to be part of the plan.
Again do not rush your recovery. There will be ups and downs but don’t rush. Relax as much as you can.
Sorry to make a long story longer. I went to a thrift store brought a a vintage table and tea set with fancy spoons for 30 bucks.
This will be a good time to work on your hobbies. I crochet so that helped me a lot. Relax relax and relax.
