In brief: Be around...
Before, to help allay anticipatory anxiety;, at surgery, so she sees your smiling face when awakens; and most importantly till she gets back on her feet and walks comfortably.
All, along the way, she'll let you know --or you'll sense--what she needs.....And when she's ready to let you go.
