What questions to ask your doctor before surgery
It is perfectly natural to be nervous before going in for any surgical procedure, however serious or minor it may be. Going in for surgery means being completely under the care of a surgeon and the nurses present, with the chance that something going wrong could have very serious repercussions for you in the future. When you are preparing to put your trust totally into the hands of your doctors, it is natural to be unsure and to feel that you need some reassurance before you can be comfortable going in. Here are some questions you can ask your surgeon to help you to feel more confident.
- What is going to happen? You should always ask your doctor what is going to happen during your surgery, to help to put your mind at ease before you go in. You will want to know what will happen prior to you going under anaesthetic most importantly, as this will help you to relax before the surgery occurs.
- What are the risks? Your doctor should always be forthcoming with what the risks of your surgery are, to help you to make an informed decision as to whether you want to take the risk or not. You never have to undergo surgery and the final choice is always yours, based on how likely it is to be helpful.
- What the recovery process will be? Never go into surgery without knowing what is going to happen after you wake up. You should not avoid finding out what the recovery process will be like due to fear, as it will only then come as a terrible shock if it is worse than you expected.
