Healthbuzz

(HealthDay News) — Recovering fromknee replacement surgery takes time, and it’s important to prepare your home before the operation.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons offers this advice:

Make sure furniture spacing allows for easy movement via crutches, a cane or walker.

Remove rugs that you may trip on, and fasten any loose cords or wires.

Make sure you have a firm, high chair with a foot rest.

Equip your bathroom with a hand rail, raised toilet seat and shower chair.

Obtain helpful items such as a reach, shoehorn and long-handled sponge, so you don’t have to bend over often.
