Helpful items to aid in recovery from surgery

Postby sackercu » Sat Oct 10, 2020 8:44 pm

Hi Guys!

I’m new here and I’m so thankful to have found this group. I have my surgery coming up on October 22 and my friends and family keep asking me if there is anything I will need to assist in my recovery. Are there any items you can recommend that made your recovery from surgery easier? Any other advice is welcome. ❤️

Thank you, I’m looking forward to getting to know you.
