I read your question completely and have understood it well enough..

Please note..

1. Yes, the procedure you are telling is totally correct.

2. And yes she can be XXXXXXX in post op period.
On fact if she is bed ridden then chances of complications like Deep Vein Thrombosis is very high.

3. How much ever she can, make her move around.
