How can I get out of bed with all these attachments after surgery?

Get Out Of Bed! Now!

The first time out of bed after surgery is not an activity to be undertaken by yourself. First of all, you have drugs still floating around inside you. Your judgement as well as your balance and blood pressure are all impaired. Getting from your bed to the washroom, whether 6 feet or 26 feet away, is never going to be more difficult. You may feel dizzy and light headed, you will experience a great rush of fluids between your legs, your abdomen will be jelly like and sore, but... you might be able to see your toes! Just do it! Practice often.
