Getting ready for surgery can be nerve-wracking for many patients, but a little preparation can help you feel more at-ease. In this article, we are going to offer up some tips for preparing yourself for minimally invasive bunion surgery.
It is absolutely essential that you follow your doctor’s pre-operative instructions to the letter. These instructions are designed to position you for success going into surgery. Failure to follow these instructions can put you at an increased risk during the procedure so it’s important to follow your doctor’s instructions as best as humanly possible.
If you have any questions about what you should or should not do before your procedure, don’t be afraid to ask your surgeon or their care team! There are no such thing as dumb questions when it comes to preparing for surgery.
After the procedure, you will have a few days of recovery at home. Do your post-op self a favor and set your home up for success after surgery. Line up a few movies, books, or games to keep you occupied as you recover. Do all your grocery shopping and meal prep before the procedure. And ask a family member or friend to help you out as needed while you recover.
