Prepare spot for hysterectomy recoveryAre there any special preparations I should make for my home or my bedroom?


Since you will probably spend most of your at-home recovery in one room, it's a good idea to spruce up and arrange the area to maximize your comfort. Something as simple as hanging up new pictures can make a huge difference.

Start with a good cleaning. Change the sheets on your bed the day you leave for the hospital so that your bed will be fresh. A body pillow, or at least extra pillows for supporting your every lounging position, would be helpful to add to your bed.

Tidy up the room and make sure the bedside table is cleared of all clutter. This will be the best place to put your cell phone, the remote control, and your water bottle.

If your room has a view, clean the windows and make sure your curtains can be pulled back. If you have a fish tank, now is the best time to clean it out.

The HysterSisters know of many gals who enlist the help of family and friends to paint the room, get a new bedspread and hang new art on the wall for a cheerful new environment.

After the first week or so, you can expect to spend more time in the family living room instead of a bedroom so keep that in mind in your preparations. Stack those magazine nearby that you haven't had a chance to enjoy. Stationery or notecards and a pretty colored pen might inspire you to send mail to your friends the old fashioned way. A new green plant nearby helps too!

Taking a bit of time to prepare your room can help you to enjoy watching your favorite movies or a good book instead of being distracted by the dust bunnies.
