    Preparing for surgery and how to find a law firm if something goes wrong

    Before you go in for surgery you are likely to feel a range of emotions. It is frightening for anyone to have to have surgery, no matter how minor it may be or how low the risks are. If you are going in for high risk surgery then it is likely that you will be even more nervous, but you should be under the care of a good doctor, who will be able to provide you with all of the information you need in advance. You should know that they will do their best to ensure that you come back out of surgery safe and well,  and this will put your mind at rest.

    • Eat well. You will usually be told to fast in the hours running up to your surgery, but in the days and weeks preceding your surgery you will want to get your body and health into the best possible shape. Make sure that you are eating regularly and healthily, so that your body is prepared for recovery.
    • Exercise. If you can do any exercise, it is often better to have your body as strong as it can be before surgery to help with the recovery process. The body heals better when it is used to it, and the healing that happens after exercise can be a great preparation for this.
    • Deal with practical issues. If you won’t be able to move about freely for a while, keep your house as clean and neat as possible, and hire a cleaning service for a few days afterwards. Let work know how long you expect to be off, and arrange childcare for your children.
    • Prepare to rest. Make sure that you have a quiet, comfortable space to relax in for the first days after your surgery.
