For many, the thought of requiring surgery is worrisome enough. How much pain will there be after the surgery? Will the surgery work? How long will it take for me to recover? Who will take care of me?
These, and many other questions ofter flow through your mind as the surgery date comes near.
Obviously, there are many types of surgeries that are offered, depending upon your situation. Some of these surgeries require little downtime. You are up and moving quickly and your normal routines aren’t far away.
For others, however, it isn’t that simple.
Those who require more aggressive type of surgeries or have complications with their surgery often take much longer to heal and may require longer term care. The need for more family help or even a recovery facility may be essential.
An example of this would be someone who has just had a joint replacement surgery. Today, it’s quite common for people to suffer from knee, hip or shoulder pain; causing them to require a replacement surgery.
Following this surgery, they may need a physical therapy team to work with their physician to allow them to fully recover from the joint replacement surgery that they just underwent.
