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

Your new Pole-ish Friend

Manoeuvering around with your new I.V. ('pole-ish') friend and hand (catheter) bag is a challenge. Most I.V. poles have a hook about a foot from the floor to hang the catheter bag and a loop of the connecting tubing. Use it. This will free one hand to help 'splint' your incision and/or use the support bars available in the washrooms or along your walkways. Use the other to push the pole. Don't use it for balance, though.
