How to prepare for surgery
If you are aware that you are going to have surgery, rather than being rushed into surgery after an accident or illness, then you actually have a better deal, allowing you to prepare for your surgery. This will give you time to get your body ready for the trauma of surgery, as well as preparing you mentally for what is going to happen, how long it will take to recover and what you can expect to happen during this time.
Talk to loved ones
Explain what your surgery is for and how it is likely to affect your life in the upcoming months. This will help to put everyone’s minds at rest, give you a chance to talk about what your fears are, and also provide you with the help and support network you need when you get out of surgery.
Get your home in order
Pay bills, rearrange and clean out any rooms that are messy or unorganised. You want your home to be completely in order when you return after your surgery, so that there is nothing for you to do.
Make your home safe
Add non slip mats to the kitchen and bathroom, tidy up and declutter so that there is nothing to trip over. Think about the fact that you will be more unsteady on your feet, and make the house as safe as you can.
Research the surgery that you are about to go through, what the recovery process is and how long it will take. This will help to put your mind at rest and make it seem more real so that you can get into the right frame of mind for the upcoming months.
