Hi Tracy... Be sure to read the surgery tips message at top of this board. I found it very helpful. Since I live out in the country, I wanted to be prepared for everything BEFORE my surgery, so I visited a home health care store, got recommendations on equipment, had them call my insurance, had them call my doc for a prescription, and they delivered what I needed to my house. Very simple... insurance covered 80%. I used walker for about 2 days, raised toilet seat for about 6 weeks, shower chair for about 10 weeks, and still use the grabber when doing laundry (to get into hampers and dryers) at nearly 5 months post-op. If I had it to do again, I would get at least one more grabber... to pick up the first grabber when I dropped it
Keep asking questions. That is how you get some peace of mind.
Best wishes, Mary in Texas
