Making your stay comfortable
After your surgery, you will not feel like, nor will you be able to get around much. You will probably be very tired and sore, so here are a few tips to make things easier for you.
- Have some easily accessible snacks handy and already bought for the day after surgery. You may not want to eat much, but you should try to have something (especially with the drugs you will be taking). We recommend dry crackers(Jatz, Saladas, Vitawheats)and/or a couple of pieces of fruit or even just some plain bread.
- Fluids. You may not feel up to drinking much but do please try and keep your fluids up.
- Ice packs. You may find it very handy to have some ice packs with you to put on sore swollen areas after surgery.
- Have all your medications set up close to where your sleeping or sitting.
