I thought I would start a forum on supplies that people didn't use or gentley used items that people wanted to give to others. Like CGS, toilet set risers, walkers- anything! Hope people post and we can help each other out with supplies! For everyone have surgery today gooood luck and I am thinking of you! For those who are healing- happy healing! For those waiting on surgeries- hope it goes fast!

I saw Walmart had a toilet seat riser for about $20.00. Not sure if you checked that out yet.

You have a great idea, Im suprised no one has posted! I am past the point of shower chair but that riser thing, thats looking real nice right now. Im at 11 days PO, so the recovery is getting better day by day.

Gingerflowers I see u are in NC. I live in SC- I was wondering if when u r done w/ ur toilet seat riser I could buy it off you? My surgery isn't until oct 29th.

I never bought one. To be honest, I toughed it out and after about 4 days it seemed irrelevant. Must have been the drugs LOL. I did look on Craigslist for that and a shower chair, didnt get that either. Really mustve been the drugs! Im trying to think where you could get them where you are, Bluffton is so small, Hilton head is too chic and Savannah is too far away. Maybe still check CL...oh and goodwill. Saw chairs, risers and walkers, just gotta get there at a good time.

I had Hydromorphone 2 mg(sp), a muscl rel that I cant remember of 500mg (ill find out if ya want), Phehergan for sickness and antibiotic. That was all. But yes, those forst two were great. It also helped I had that CNA. I didnt move unless I had to go to the bathroom, but I did move early and quite freq b/c Im just hyper. I went to the gym 5 days a week before hand, I think that makes the recovery and pain mgt more tolerable. I listened to my body a LOT but I also was determined to get thru this w/ the least amount of discomfort and inconvenience ...um, that sounds stupid but I think the mind can really play into this. Seriously. I also have freq and dibilitating migraines, so my body seems to be numb to pain. Least I think thats it, Im sure it was the drugs :)
