 Re: First surgery and broken bone(s). NEED SUPPORT

Ouuuuch. This will be a memorable Memorial Day weekend for you, unfortunately.

Do you have the "tall potty" thing that sits on top of your toilet seat? It makes going to the bathroom much easier. If you are in the US you can get them in Wal-greens, CVS or I'm sure Wal-Mart.

If you can, try to get as much of a schedule going as possible. I was fortunate to be able to work from home (moved in temporarily with my mom, who is retired). After work ended each day I would move to her patio and talk on the phone, read a good book and did some light free weight arm exercises. I also got an adult coloring book which passes a lot of time and is a stress reliever. Now is also the time to find some good binge-worthy shows online.

Are you going to be able to do PT? It really helps when your body is ready for it. Good luck on your recovery.
