getting in and out of bed


I am just 5 days post-op, but I have found, that if my mattress is moved over about 5 inches, enough not to off set the DH side of the bed. I can use that ledge to set my feet down, since I cannot reach the floor. I use this as a half way point, and from there I can move the rest of the way into bed. It also works great when the coughs kick in, those have to be the worst!
Overall, I think I have done pretty good. I have the family make sure the cell phone and cordless phones are next to the bed. Picture full of water, TV remote and the blinds are open. The sunlight does wonders. Keeps me on a better sleep pattern.

Hope this helps and If you have more hints please send to me, I have a few more weeks to go!

in and out of bed

You sound like you have figured out a great way to get in and out of bed on your own.

I just like my heating pad and freezer gel pack for the first month or two. Heating pad for my back and shoulders, ice pack for the abdominal area where it burned.
