So I am 3 weeks post op today. Can I bend now to pick up toys, laundry etc? I didn't ask the doc when I saw him. My hubby yells I'm doing to much but I feel good and rest a lot. Advise?

Re: bending ok?

I guess ask your doc.. I asked too about bending with my legs and he said no because coming back up puts pressure on the pelvic floor.. I bought a grabber.. Best thing invented..

Re: bending ok?

Oh it is God sent!! I decided to get it 3 days post op after I was left home alone for about an hour. I went to sit up and in the process of taking the blankets off myself, the blankets knocked my pain meds bottle onto the floor.. I stood up and stared at the dang bottle trying to figure out what the heck I was going to do..

Needless to say, the bottle stayed on the floor till my husband returned an hour later.. That evening hubby went out and got me a grabber..
