Finally, something you may want to consider buying for reaching things and picking things up off the floor is a hand held gizzmo, called a "grabber". This thing works like a charm for picking items up off the floor. They can be bought I believe at WalMart, many drug stores too. Ours is a plastic one, I do know they also make them out of metal too. Just a thought to pass on.
Please, please stay out of the car until the dr oks it. If you were to say get rear-ended or something it would probably totally mess up everything that you have just had surgically fixed. I have seen this happen, if you think you were in pain before, you have no idea what its like to go thru it again. Better to be safe than sorry.
