ARE YOU HAVING SURGERY AND FEELING UNPREPARED?
If you’ve never been through a surgical procedure before then you probably haven’t given thought to what all you might need beforehand. Sure the Doctor has informed you of what to expect and how long recovery might take, maybe even make suggestions of some supplies you might need, but if you’re anything like me then even the most important things I’ve left to the last minute assuming I’d take care of it in due time. Preparing for your recovery is going to be essential to how well you recover and this is key to healing with as little discomfort as possible. Here we’ll give you some available options to consider and answers to questions you might have before the big day. Keep reading to learn more.
WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO SPEND YOUR RECOVERY TIME?
If it is going to be in the comfort of your own home then you may want to consider what areas of the home you will need the most access to and if those areas are prepared such as the bedroom. Consider a hospital bed for instance, you might be more comfortable in a bed intended for medical recovery as opposed to your own. A hospital bed would be ideal because you can adjust the bed such as the height, the head, and the foot end of the bed. At E Care Medical Supplies you can rent this equipment and we’ll deliver, assemble the bed and pick up once it’s time for return. Getting a full nights rest might be hard at first but with the right medical equipment you’ll be on your way to the sleep your body requires in order to make a full recovery. Make sure to do your research before deciding what type of bed will best suit your recovery needs.
WILL YOU NEED MOBILITY ASSISTANCE?
If your doctor recommends a mobility aid such as a walker, rollator or wheelchair to make getting around easier then E Care Medical Supplies carries these as well. This can make things easier not only on yourself but also the caregiver if you will have someone assisting you during your recovery process. If you decide you need a wheelchair then keep in mind that wheelchairs come in different widths? There’s no “standard hospital size” when it comes to these, just simply what best fits the patient from arm to arm. E Care Medical Supplies carries sizes 18”, 20”, 22” and 24” wide manual wheelchairs. If you’re not sure what size you need then measure a regular chair you comfortably sit in from arm to arm and use that as a guide when searching for a manual wheelchair.
HAVING A SURGERY THAT REQUIRES A LIFT CHAIR
In some cases your Doctor will recommend an Infinite Position or Zero Gravity lift chair for post op recovery to promote proper spinal alignment, improve blood circulation, and increase lung capacity. This is typically accomplished by orienting the chair in what is known as the Trendelenburg position, in which the feet and legs are elevated above the heart. E Care Medical Supplies offers these as rentals along with any other supplies you may need during recovery. We recommend these Lift Chairs for surgeries such as heart, hip, back, breast augmentation, knee replacement, liposuction and tummy tucks. If you’re not familiar with this equipment then E Care Medical Supplies can help you decide if a Lift Chair will help you or your loved one’s recovery process.
Having surgery whether minor or major is an important ordeal that when it comes to preparing for your recovery it should never be overlooked. How you’ll be able to manage your pain and rest is crucial to how well you’ll recover. We hope you found this information helpful and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us.
