After surgery

After your surgery we will give you information on what you can do in hospital to reduce the risk of blood clots and chest infections. This will help get you back to yourself as soon as possible.

  • We will usually give you a reminder of what you can do including advice of a goal chart and encouraging you to get up and walking on the day of your surgery with the help of staff
  • Encouraging early eating and drinking depending on the type of surgery carried out. (We will discuss this with you usually before your surgery so that you are prepared)
  • Help work through your criteria to enable you to go home
