    In just a little over two weeks, (Feb 11th, 2013) I am going for TKR.
    I am wondering if anybody can give me any tips to make things easier
    when I come home. I have heard from some people that the biggest
    problem they had was sleeping in a bed. They had to sleep in a
    recliner for a few weeks because it was more comfortable If that is the case then I am going out to buy a recliner. I just want to be sure
    I have everything that I will need to make myself more comfortable.
    Any tips people have will be appreciated. I know this is a rough
    surgery but I need to stay positive.
