Newbie question

Hi again all. My surgery is in two days and I am busy getting everything together.

I ordered a raised toilet seat, a shower chair, a hand held shower attachment, and personal wipes etc....

Will they supply a grabby thing and a walker in the hospital or am I going to have to buy one?

I hope everyone is doing well!!



  • For my surgery, they did supply a walker at the hospital but I found it cheaper to buy my own for at home than to rent one from them. I had to use it for the first month before I could walk straight. They did not have the grabber though and that was a question that I had for the PT who told me to buy one when I went home. I actually ended up not needing one though. I was able to reach.
