Thank you, @debbraw and @contentandwell. I had my pre-surgery appointment Thursday and apparently since I have a husband at home as my caretaker, that is good enough for me to not have in-home PT. Since we live in the country, there isn't anyone around much closer. Ended up opting for the complex where my doctor's office is — even though about 5-10 minutes further — since I was told that if PT had a question, he could call in the doc or one of his colleagues.
Got a new worry! When being shown by pre-op PT how I would have to sit down/get up afterwards — keep operated hip leg straight while bending and putting extra pressure on my very arthritic opposite knee — started getting a lot more discomfort in that knee than normal. Anyone else end up stressing an opposite problem joint during recovery? Wondering if putting an ace bandage or something would support it during recovery.
