Coping with medications after surgery
If you have had surgery following Castle Point road traffic accidents or any serious injury, then it will take some time to recover, with plenty of treatment and medication required in the interim period. Whatever injuries you have sustained, surgery takes a lot out of your body, and you will require lots of medication to help you to heal fully and to avoid infection.
If you are on lots of medications, at a time when you are feeling a lot of pain and are probably quite tired and woozy most of the time, it can be difficult to keep up. Here are some ways in which you can stay on track with your medications and recover more easily.
- Set a schedule. If you are taking many different types of medication all through the day, then you should have a schedule written down somewhere to which you can refer throughout the day and remind yourself to take your medications.
- Arrange your medications. If you have a certain number of medications to take each day, you could always split these into individual bags or pill boxes so that you can check that you have taken everything you need to. Otherwise, if you are taking a lot of different medication, it is easy to forget whether you have taken one or not.
- Ask loved ones to help you. Whilst you are recovering from surgery, you should not be expected to be as ‘on the ball’ as you may have been before. Ask your loved ones to offer you help during this time, arranging your medications for you and making sure you take them, amongst other things.
- Tell your doctor if there is a problem. You should absolutely not be taking any medication which has such strong side effects that it is making you more ill. If you have a serious reaction to any of the medications you are given, stop taking it right away and speak to your doctor.
