    Knee arthroscopy recovery and obesity

    I tore my meniscus last week and will be having an arthroscopy. I'm obese and having a difficult time doing things like getting off the sofa.

    I'd love to hear from anyone who has been in a similar situation. I need some tips on what I can do to get off the sofa easily without having to push off/up with that knee.

    Thanks for your help.

    Do you have a walker?
    If yiu can afford it, there are chairs that can elevate you into a more standing position. Another option could be to raise your couch.
