Just curious how difficult/easy going up and down stairs was for those who already had surgery? My bedroom is in the basement so ill need to climb one flight of stairs to use the washroom/kitchen.

Re: Stairs

If you have no choice but to climb stairs, be careful and hold on. I was given something like a 10-15 mininum I can't remember exactly. I was allowed to climb them once a day, which I did, to shower. I took them very slowwwww. Going up was much easier than coming down. I was always nervous that I would fall. I slept in my family room (alternating between the sofa and a chair) and I have a powder room on my 1st floor so that made it a little easier for me, especially with all of the peeing

Is it possible for you to sleep on the same floor as the bathroom for a little while, to spare you climbing the steps a lot?
Check w/ your doctor to see what his or het restrictions are regarding the stairs
