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.
- 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
