Things to avoid before surgery

_51970604_taking_a_tablet-splGetting ready for surgery is not just a mental process, but also a physical one. It’s important to ready your body just as much as it is to ready your mind, and a big part of this is watching what you put into your body. This includes foods, drinks, and medications. Here are our top rules to remember before undergoing surgery:

  1. No smoking: don’t even use patches or chew nicotine gum. The nicotine in these products could slow down your healing process.
  2. Avoid certain painkillers, including aspirin, ibuprofen, and other NSAIDs. These can make yoru blood thin, which might cause more bruising.
  3. Don’t take herbal medications, either. These could react badly with our own medications.
  4. It’s always good advice to avoid alcohol before major surgeries!

If you follow these simple rules, you shouldn’t be caught out by any unnecessary risks in surgery! Good luck in your pre-surgery quest for good health.
