Rearrange your home. It's important to make changes now so everything will be ready when you get back from the hospital. Consider sleeping in a room on the first floor. Set up a kind of "base camp" where you'll spend most of your time -- with phone, computer, remotes, and everything else you'll need in easy reach. Make sure your house will be easy to move around in with a walker or crutches. Remove possible tripping hazards, such as loose rugs.

Buy helpful gadgets. Devices like reachers or long-handled shoe horns will come in handy after surgery. Set up railings on stairways or in the bathroom to make life during recovery easier and safer.
