Stairs after surgery

I have my TVH scheduled for May 25th and trying to prepare the recovery space. I'm not sure how I will handle the stairs in my house. Was that a problem for anyone?

Re: Stairs after surgery

Hello, I had LSH and spent one night in the hospital and I have 2 flights of stairs in my house and never had a problem, one flight from the entrance to the living room and kitchen, another to the bedrooms and bathrooms. Just take it nice and slow no bouncing around etc and you will do great. Hold on to that handrail and slow and steady. I had to go up and down quite a bit but it wasnt a problem and I think its good to get walking soon after any surgery just take it slow and steady. Good luck to you!! I hope your recovery goes as smooth as mine did.

Re: Stairs after surgery

I only have a couple of stairs that lead into and out of my home, I learned after my TAH & 10 days in hospital that my legs were pretty weak when I got home and hard to lift due to edema so I picked up the trick of leaning my shoulder into the wall as I stepped up. You might want to give this a try if you are extra tired and feel like your upper body is stronger than your lower body.
