Prior to surgery your surgeon may wish for you to cease certain medications, this does not exclude vitamins, minerals and herbal supplements. Be sure to check with the clinic what you can, or cannot have.
Preparing for surgery is exciting as this is when the reality of your surgery sinks in. Although this can be a daunting process for some. Often patients feel an array of emotions throughout their surgical journey. This process is quite normal and often referred to as the “Post op blues”, although rest assured this is due to a combination of the medication and stress.
Generally, the roller-coaster consists of;
Consult; excitement of what could be a reality
Pre – Surgery; nervous, anxiety and doubt - the what if all goes wrong stage
Post op day of surgery; Knocked out - on drugs don't care just want comfort and to recover
One week post op; Wows - I'm amazing that was easy stage
Three weeks’ post op; Down and out – I’m not healing quick enough, is that it? Was it worth it? Guilt stage
Six weeks’ post op; The only way is up! - getting better YAY feeling great.
Twelve weeks’ post op; What’s next – ready to take on the world.
