Most of your post-operative concerns will be answered at your pre-operative appointment. In the meantime, you should arrange for transportation from the hospital and for someone to stay with you at home for at least the first night after your procedure. Child care arrangements should be made pre-operatively and arrangements for transportation to and from your post-operative visits should also be considered. For those patients coming from out-of-town, our office can assist you with your post-operative logistical planning.
Most patients do not need to obtain any special post-operative equipment. Virtually everything that you will need from a medical perspective will be provided for you. Patients should, however, arrange for their meals to be prepared in advance and easy to heat up if there is no one available to cook for them at home. Post-operative recovery locations in your home should be comfortable and close to the bathroom. Daily needs and post-operative medicines should be easily accessible. However, in general, most patients ultimately find that the post-operative period is surprisingly straight-forward and much easier than they imagined.
Managing friends and family during this period can often be the most challenging aspect. Maintaining privacy is regularly the primary concern. We recommend that you leave enough time for recovery before you make social commitments so that your friends will not miss you. Avoidance of any negative or non-supportive individuals is also vital. You should be concentrating only on taking care of yourself and not on what others are thinking. Surround yourself only with positive influences, and should you find yourself in a position where your friends or family are wearing you out with their “helpfulness”, do not hesitate to ask for a break.
Many patients are surprised at how quick and easy the post-operative recovery process is. Remember, now is the time to be selfish. Concentrate only on yourself and your healing. Once this recovery phase is over, you can go back to being your normal generous self.
