Tip for when using the bathroom after surgery

The toilet in my bathroom is not next to the vanity, and you can't reach the toilet paper without twisting your torso. If you have the same problem, my tip is to set up a TV tray in front of or near the toilet.

On my tray, I had a roll of toilet paper, my irri-bottle, and a stack of pantyliners. I also put a small wastebasket under the TV tray.

It really helped the first few days after surgery when I was too sore to twist to reach the TP or bend over to reach my irri-bottle and pantyliners on the floor.
