Shoulder surgery while full timing

Next Wednesday I have my 3rd should replacement surgery; don't ask, not sure why it's taking 3 times and praying this one works. We are now full timing and not sure what to expect and a little apprehensive recovering while in a coach. I think it's the tighter quarters, steps in and out of coach, that sort of stuff. I'm sure all will be fine though.

Any suggestions from those who have gone through something similar. The surgery I'm actually having is a second total reverse shoulder.

Unfortunately, you sound like you might be the one with the experience here. I would only add; don't be afraid to ask for help. If the walls start to close in than you could always try an AirBnb just to take a break.
Hoping/praying you have a speedy recovery.

Steps shouldn't be an issue with shoulder surgery.

While full-timing we went through two knee replacements, a shoulder replacement surgery, cancer, gallbladder, hernia surgeries.

We felt it was so easy to recuperate in small quarters. Lots of things to hold onto to get around. The bathroom wasn't an issue. With the shoulder I did sleep in the recliner often. Laying flat didn't feel good.

Best of luck to you!!
