How should I prepare to recover from ankle fusion surgery at home?

  • Create a living space on your first floor—climbing stairs can be difficult right after surgery.
  • Remove loose rugs and cords. 
  • Install safety bars or a secure handrail in your shower or bath and secure stairway handrails.
  • Get a stable, comfortable chair with a firm seat cushion and back, and a footstool to elevate your leg if you’re recovering from an ankle fusion.
  • Arrange for a toilet seat riser with arms if you have a low toilet.
  • Get a bench or chair for your shower.
  • Shop for the groceries you’ll need when you return home from the hospital.
  • If you live alone, ask a friend or family member to check in with you.
