Recovery: What does it involve?
Recovering from a surgery or procedure is just as important as preparing for it. Being prepared for your return home is one step to help you adjust to the recovery process. Northern Arizona Orthopaedics has provided helpful suggestions for patients to keep in mind when returning home from surgery.
Bring in Help — Ask a friend or relative to stay a couple of days to assist with simple tasks or duties.
Rearrange the Household — Moving furniture and other items could help reduce the risk of falls and make it easier to maneuver.
Plan Meals and Entertainment — Planning healthy meals will reduce stress and help you maintain a good diet while recovering. To speed the recovery process up, find books, magazines, and movies to watch.
