Health Tip: Recovering After Knee Replacement
Prepare your home before the surgery

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Recovering from knee replacement surgery takes time, and it's important to prepare your home before the operation.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons offers this advice:

  • Make sure furniture spacing allows for easy movement via crutches, a cane or walker.
  • Remove rugs that you may trip on, and fasten any loose cords or wires.
  • Make sure you have a firm, high chair with a foot rest.
  • Equip your bathroom with a hand rail, raised toilet seat and shower chair.
  • Obtain helpful items such as a reacher, shoehorn and long-handled sponge, so you don't have to bend over often.
