Importance of Support System in Recovery
One of the benefits of an outpatient surgery is that you can go home soon after the surgery. And when postoperative instructions are properly followed, recovery is usually fast and successful. No matter what type of surgery you have, good support system can make a big difference, especially in the first 24-48 hours post surgery. A friend or a family member will listen to your discharge instructions, take you home and make sure you follow them. They will help you if you feel the effects from anesthesia or pain medication. They can bring you nutritious food and make you drink lots of water. They can help with daily activities so you can get plenty of rest. They will also be your emotional support and provide motivation if recovery seems to take too long. Let complete and successful recovery be your goal- we’ll do our part!
