To ensure a smooth recovery it is essential to follow certain precautions after the surgery. Your well-being is our top priority, and we have compiled a list of simple yet crucial steps for your post-operative care.
After the surgery, it’s vital to get plenty of rest. Allow your body the time it needs to heal and regain strength. Avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting for at least two to four weeks, as it may strain the surgical site and delay healing.
Take care of your incision site to prevent infections. Keep it clean and dry, and follow your surgeon’s advice on dressing changes. If you notice any redness, swelling, or discharge, immediately contact our medical team.
Strictly adhere to the prescribed medications, including pain relievers and antibiotics, if given. Take them at the recommended intervals to manage pain and prevent infection.
Consume a healthy, balanced diet to promote healing. Include plenty of fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and fluids in your meals. Avoid greasy, spicy, and heavy foods that may stress your digestive system.
Gradually reintroduce light physical activities, such as short walks, to improve blood circulation and prevent blood clots. Consult your surgeon before starting any exercise routine.
Be vigilant for any alarming symptoms, such as excessive pain, fever, vomiting, or difficulty breathing. If you experience any of these, reach out to GBL Hospital immediately for prompt evaluation.
Smoking and alcohol consumption can hinder the healing process. Refrain from these habits during your recovery period.
Your surgeon will provide specific post-operative instructions tailored to your condition. Follow them diligently to ensure a speedy and successful recovery.
