How do you avoid pain post-operatively?
If you’re having surgery, you may have noticed the pain worsens.
This is due to the surgery being a ‘full-on’ procedure, where the surgeon has made a significant hole in the body, with the intention of removing the whole body.
If that doesn’t work, the surgeon might try to close the wound and then re-open it after the operation is done.
But the best way to avoid pain is to avoid unnecessary surgery, which is when the body tries to repair itself in a way that’s unlikely to help.
That’s why it’s important to keep in mind that there are plenty of ways to avoid post-operation pain.
Here are five tips to help you avoid unnecessary post-op pain.
Get a proper, safe massage 1.
If you want to relax or even feel some relief, then getting a massage is a great way to do that.
If your doctor tells you that a massage isn’t safe, that’s because they haven’t researched the procedure.
But if you think that a gentle massage may be safe, then do one anyway.
That way, you’ll feel less pain and less discomfort, and hopefully you’ll be able to return to your normal life.
You may also find that the massage will reduce your symptoms, so you won’t need to take medication.
So, do what you can to make it safe to do.
It may help to get some massage before your surgery, to get the body used to your body.
You can also try a physical massage afterwards, or use a massager for more relief.
If the doctor tells us that you have to use a massage, we’ll ask you to go to the operating theatre and give the surgeon a massage.
If they say that it’s too painful, that they don’t have any more time to make an incision, or that the incision isn’t big enough, we can’t tell you what to do, so we’ll just say that you need to wait for them to make a new incision.
We’ll also explain how to remove the body and the procedure itself.
Get rest and hydration before surgery 1.
In some cases, the doctor may recommend getting some rest or hydration for a couple of days before your operation.
If this isn’t possible, then you’ll need to make arrangements for a friend or family member to bring you a drink of water before your recovery.
Make sure you’re taking your medications for the surgery You may have been told that you must take medication for post-surgery pain, or you may be told that it’ll hurt your tummy.
The NHS recommends that you check the prescription label carefully, so it can be checked by your doctor or pharmacist before you go through with the operation.
We know that it can take time for medicines to reach the bloodstream, so don’t let the time go by without getting the correct medication.
It’s also important to be careful about any pain medication you take for pain.
If it is unclear whether it’s the right medicine, don’t take it until you’ve got the correct dose and have taken enough rest.
Get pain relief before surgery If you have pain after the surgery, it’s a good idea to have pain relief for the next day or two.
If pain relief is not available for the operation, you might want to wait until the following day.
This will allow the pain to heal, so that it won’t affect your recovery time.
Know how much time you need for pain relief 1.
The length of time it takes to get pain relief varies between people.
You might have pain for a few hours, and you might have it for hours, or days.
That means that you’ll probably need to be in bed for longer than normal, which can affect your health.
If possible, make sure you have some time off work, or your job is a pain reliever, before you get back to work.
The pain relief will last for about 10 minutes.
If there’s no pain relief, your body will need time to heal.
That time can be longer than you think.
For example, if you’re a patient with a chronic pain condition, and your pain lasts for 10 days, and it’s not getting better, your pain might take 10 days to heal completely.
So the pain you feel before the surgery might be too intense, so your body won’t be ready for pain to start again for 10 more days.
If so, then your body might need to rest a bit longer before you’re ready for a pain-free recovery.
You should take pain relief throughout the surgery.
If, during the operation or the days following the surgery you experience some discomfort, stop taking pain relief and get some rest.
Then start getting some pain relief again.
