While You Are in the Hospital
After a couple of days, a physical therapist (PT) will come to your room to help you get out of bed. The PT will work with you to walk around your room.
There are 3 things you should be able to do before you can go home:
- Walk around the room and hallway
- Eat and drink
- Have a bowel movement
The nurses and therapists will help you every day.
Remember, the more you walk, the faster you will be able to accomplish all the other things too.
