Well, I was told that the goal was to prevent blood clots, improve mobility, accelerate healing and promote general well-being. I was given different information sheets that included recommendations on diet in preparation and after surgery as well a special exercise routine. I was offered psychological support before one of my surgeries. So I’m glad to say that my doctors have a holistic approach.

I’m post op and the recommendation is to get out of bed from the day of the surgery and start mild exercise starting on the next day (walking + a special exercise routine). It’s my third one and it’s been always the same advice : don’t stay in bed all day.
