Listen to Your Doctors
You are going to get recovery orders from your doctor after your surgery. They are going to give you restrictions, advice, and follow-up care orders. If you ignore your doctor’s orders, you can very well end up back at square one.
Doing too much too soon can ruin your surgery recovery. Your body needs rest. If you are going to work before you have been told it is safe or recommended to do so, you can negate any recovery you have already done as well as make things harder for you to feel better.
Getting back into regular movement often involves physical therapy that is carefully curated and guided by a physical therapist. This is a safe way to get back on your feet.
Listen to Your Body
One of the key components to surgery recovery is listening to your body. Being able to know what your body needs is important. If you are feeling tired, you need to rest. If you are trying to do something and it is painful, you should take a break and wait to try until you are healed more.
Don’t force yourself into activities you are not ready for. You need to take it easy until you are strong enough and healed enough.
You should nourish your body and hydrate so that you have the right fuel to help your body do what it needs to do.
