Guidelines for post-op physical recovery exercises

At the moment I am posting a series of articles aimed at post-op recovery. I thought it would be a good idea to supply you with some common sense guidelines and checks for you to go through before embarking on any of the techniques described.

Make sure:

  • There is no reason why you should not practice the techniques – check with your nurse or doctor
  • Your bed-rails are up
  • Your drips and tubes are tidy, and that they won’t fall out, pulled or tangled
  • Your alarm button is somewhere safe and easily accessible – make sure it won’t get knocked on the floor
  • Your clothes and bed covers will adequately cover you
