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.
