Surgery following an accident
Not all surgery is serious enough to require a hospital stay but it is natural to be afraid of going into surgery, no matter how minor it may be. Day surgeries are usually for lesser conditions, and you should be able to go home as soon as the surgery is finished. Here are some ways in which you can stay calm before your surgery.
Try to stay calm before your procedure – On the day of your procedure, do relaxing and enjoyable things which will take your mind off of what is happening and try not to focus too hard on it. Staying calm will help you to stop the anxiety that would make your pain and stress worse once you reach the hospital.
Take a friend or loved one – Bring someone with you to wait whilst you have your procedure. You can talk to this person in the waiting room to stay calm, and their presence should act as a relaxant right up until you go in for surgery.
Talk to the doctor – Before you go into surgery, talk to the doctor about what is going to happen and what you should feel. Your doctor will do everything they can to ensure that you don’t feel any pain and will explain everything to you to help calm you down.
Breathe deeply – As you go into your procedure, focus on your breathing, and make sure that you are taking long, slow breaths in and out. This will stop you hyperventilating, which is a major cause of passing out due to anxiety.
