Recovering from any surgery would require the
help and support of people around you, especially
of your doctor and medical team along with your
friends and family members. The initial days
following the knee replacement surgery can be
difficult for the patient as the pain from
surgery may persist. Also, carrying out daily
activities or doing things by themselves would be
difficult as you may be in recovery period.
Lets find out certain tips to keep in mind
following the knee replacement surgery.

Start with the basics Once you get discharged
from the hospital, it doesnt mean that you have
fully recovered. The complex phase will be over
once you leave the hospital. Setting up your home
for complete recovery would be done and it should
be equipped with things you may need like pillows
to elevate your legs, ice pack to get pain
relief, phone to ease out communication with
others, medications, walkers, clothes and clean
sheets to sleep, sterilized dressing materials
for your knee. Having someone at your house would
also be good so that you can have food and
medicines on time and can call them for help if
needed Medications and wound care As mentioned
earlier, if someone is there to assist you or
help you out, they can also help you in caring
for your wound as well. Gathering the
medications, administering them on time and
re-stocking them according to the needs should be
done by the person who helps you out. Monitoring
the wound for any swelling or inflammation,
dressing the wound at regular intervals,
re-stocking bandages and other medicines as
needed can also be done by the person who assists

Exercises Rehabilitation exercises or
Physiotherapy sessions are available for the
patients post surgery. Doctors usually recommend
30 minutes of walking, at least three times per
day for a patient in recovery. You may feel
exercising as painful but it is normal and this
rehabilitation process can ease and speed up the
recovery Watch for changes The caretaker or the
person who underwent the surgery should keep a
track of general health condition. If any visible
changes are found, seek medical help immediately.
There can be side effects from the medicine,
complications of the surgery or visible changes
in the wound which worsens everyday

Keep up with paperwork Knee replacement is a
complex process where the relatives of the
patient should handle a lot of matters such as
medical bills, surgery bills, physiotherapy
charges etc. Failing to handle the paperwork and
bills on time can mentally impact the patient and
immediate relatives. It can also lead to anxiety.
If the paperwork is handled well, the patient can
completely focus on the recovery without worrying
much about the paperwork Support of a caregiver
is essential when a patient undergoes surgery and
recovery process. Following the surgery, the
patient should be emotionally and physically
ready for their job and their life ahead.
