Tip Tuesday – Hydrate

Happy Tip Tuesday!

One vital part of recovery is keeping your body hydrated to it can heal. Especially during winter months, it can be hard to keep hydrated as we don’t feel as thirsty. Make sure to keep a glass of water or bottle near you. Some ladies even set alarms to help remind them to keep up with the water intake. Even if you aren’t thirsty, make sure you are drinking those ounces! Help your body to heal faster and return to normal functions.

Stay ahead of the pain

Stay ahead of the pain!

As you head home, your doctor or hospital nurse will discuss pain management with you. You may be given a prescription or you may be encouraged to take over the counter Tylenol or ibuprofen. Make sure to ask your doctor about any questions you have about your pain.

Keeping a notepad next to your bed or chair will help you track your dosages. Those first few days/weeks of surgery can leave you feeling very tired, and it’s easy to be confused. By keeping track you won’t forget a dosage or take too many.

But, of course, don’t let your pain get away from you. Take your medicines on schedule. If you ignore your pill schedule, you will find that it is hard to “stay ahead of the pain”.

The use of ice packs will often minimize your need for pain medicines. We know from personal experiences, our pocket abdominal binder with ice packs helps a great deal to provide gentle compression along with cold packs.

Ice on your incision will be something that will help your incision to heal faster and will help you to minimize your overall pain level. Feel better soon!
