11. Do I have a support system in place to help during my recovery?
Post-surgery recovery is not something you can do alone. You will need help when you return home after surgery. If you live alone and don’t have someone to help, you may want to seek home-care assistance from an agency. For at least a few weeks, you'll likely need some assistance getting dressed, preparing food, changing your bandages, and moving around.
