The first two weeks were brutal - even trying to rise from the toilet hurt. Sis brought a commode which helped so much - it fits over the toilet and is higher so the arm didnt pull as much to get up.
Also, she brought a picker upper gadget as leaner forward or bending over was agony.
I used safety pins to clip the ends of a hand towel so I could rub between my fingers to dry them.
Got my hair clipped off so could just let it dry naturally - I miss pinning it up but when I can reach up my hair will have grown enough again.
Sis loaned me some lovely clothes and I bought slacks a couple sizes larger so they were easier to pull up.
