Avoid Hindering Your Surgery Recovery
Surgery recovery is a sensitive time for your body, and if you don’t follow instructions from your surgeon, you could be hindering the recovery process. No one wants to prolong their surgery recovery, so it’s important to do everything you can to expedite it rather than slow it down. Today in the Pearl Recovery Retreat and Wellness blog, we talk about some common recovery mistakes to avoid.
Not Giving Your Body the Time it Needs
Surgery can be a traumatic event for your body. It absolutely needs time to recover afterward. The worst thing you can do for your body is to push it too hard. Even if you feel fine, your body may not be ready for your typical amount of activity. Just follow your surgeon’s instructions for surgery recovery. They’ll give you a timeline of typically 1-2 weeks, sometimes more, to let your body properly heal. Don’t take this as a suggestion, take it as a prescription. The surgeon knows how long your body needs better than you will, since they’ve done this plenty of times. Just stick to the surgery recovery schedule and your body will thank you.
Not Being Active Enough
On the flip side of the equation, you also need to get your body moving eventually. Your surgeon will let you know when during your surgery recovery you should be moving around. Again, this isn’t a suggestion. You need to get your strength back and the only way to do this is to get your body moving again. If you’re not moving around enough, you risk blood clots. Don’t worry, your surgeon will give you specific instructions, so as long as you follow them you won’t have these problems.
Not Eating Properly
Finally, your body needs nutrients and vitamins to properly recover. This means following a post-surgery diet regimen that includes healthy foods and plenty of fluids. Your surgeon will most likely recommend a diet for you, based on the procedure. If you follow this diet closely, your surgery recovery should go off without a hitch.
