Manage stairs after arthroscopic hip surgery?

Hi, all. I'm new to this forum. I'm scheduled for arthroscopic hip surgery in about two weeks here in Chicago. I'm concerned about the fact that I live in a building with a huge flight of stairs, no elevator. Will I be able to manage stairs to go to PT, etc. right after surgery? Thanks for any helpful suggestions!See More
