How should I prepare for my at-home recovery?Nate Deisler
- Ask someone to spend a week at home with you—especially if you live alone.
- Prepare to take it easy for two weeks—compile reading material or a list of movies or television shows you’d like to watch. You’ll be instructed to avoid straining, bending, or lifting for two to three weeks.
- Shop for groceries before your procedure. Your surgical team will be able to give you a copy of your suggested diet.
