Post-Surgery Recovery Guidelines
Ensure Relaxing & Restorative Healing After Surgery With Pearl Wellness & Recovery

Set Aside the Time for Healing After Surgery
While it may be tempting to return to work and home responsibilities soon after your procedure, doing too much too soon could jeopardize the results of your operation and lead to potentially devastating complications. Give yourself the time to rest, relax, and heal during your post-surgery recovery period. Take the view that “slow and steady wins the race” and set aside at least the minimum amount of recovery time recommended by your doctor before returning to work and everyday chores. The time you spend healing properly after surgery will be well worth it in the long run.
Prepare Your Home Ahead of Time
For the first few days in your post-surgery recovery period, your mobility may be limited. Prepare your home ahead of time by stocking your fridge and pantry with healthy foods, making sure all necessary chores are completed, and all prescription medications are refilled or picked up. You may even consider relocating to a room in your home that is closer to the restroom or on the ground floor of your home to avoid having to walk very far. Some patients find it extremely helpful to hire a private duty nurse during this time to help them heal after surgery within the comfort of their own home.
Follow All of Your Doctor’s Instructions
No matter your individual procedure, you will receive specific instructions about correct wound care, permitted ranges of movement, and a schedule for taking medications. It is essential that you follow all of these instructions to prevent infection and ensure proper healing after surgery.
Nourish Your Body
The human body is built to heal and repair when given the right support in the post-surgery recovery period. While you are healing after surgery, minimize your toxic load by refraining from smoking and drinking. Focus on eating highly nourishing foods such as lean proteins, an abundance of organic fruits and vegetables, and plenty of filtered water that will supply your body with the fuel it needs to heal.
When in Doubt—Ask!
Sometimes complications do occur during your post-surgery recovery period. It is critically important to contact your doctor straight away if you feel something may be wrong. Be sure to communicate immediately if you notice any of the following as you heal after surgery:
- Severe or increasing pain
- Nausea or vomiting
- A racing heart or frequent heart palpitations
If you notice your incision site becoming red, breaking open, bleeding, or producing pus, contact your doctor immediately. If left untreated, these kinds of changes can severely hinder your post-surgery recovery process. Make sure to keep your scar covered for at least six months after surgery as a sunburn will darken any scars healing after surgery.
