If you are recovering from a serious injury, surgery or an illness, there are likely to be a number of treatments and medications that you need to keep up with until you are fully recovered. Although you will probably not be at work whilst you are recovering, and will have more time to focus on your recovery, it is likely that right at the beginning it will be difficult to stick to everything that has been prescribed or recommended to you. It is crucial that you follow the advice of your doctor to the letter, to speed up your recovery, so here are some tips on doing so.
- Ask for a paper and pen. While you are still in the hospital or doctors surgery, ask for some paper and a pen so that you can write down any advice and treatment you are being told about. Your doctor should be more than happy to provide you with this so that you can make notes about what they are saying.
- Ask questions. If there is anything you don’t understand then this is the most likely thing to be forgotten. Make sure that you clarify with your doctor what they mean if you get lost.
- Have a system. Set up a schedule for each day to take medication, do exercises and re-apply bandages and so on. If you write this down and fit it around the rest of your day then it should be simple enough to keep up with.
- Call your doctor. If at any point you feel that you have gotten lost and may have forgotten something, you are always within your rights to call your doctor back and ask for clarification or help. Your doctor wants you to get better as much as you do, and will be happy to help you.
