BEFORE SURGERY!

By Rafael Lugo

Here are a few tips to follow just before surgery

#1 Dont smoke and if you do stop at least two weeks before - During surgery your anesthesiologist will be doing the breathing with you using a ventilator. Smoking decreases the exchange of oxygen in the lungs and makes it harder to ventilate you. Nicotine is also a vasoconstrictor and this could impact wound healing and general recovery overall deceasing blood flow to area of the body that need it the most

#2 Shower -Take a good shower the night before, but refrain from shaving the area to be operated on. Let the shaving happen the moment before the cut is made. Showering will help decrease bacteria in the skin, but shaving makes the bacteria more prominent and can actually increase the chances of infection. The excess hair will be clipped in the operating room right before surgery and this is better

#3 eat healthy the two weeks before surgery focusing on protein, healthy fats and vegetable. We should alway aim to eat healthy, but if we are having elective surgery trying to improve the nutrient levels in the body tight before surgery is a good idea.

#4 Exercise - This one is tricky. If you exercise, by all means please continue and the two weeks prior get a good routine going. IF you do not exercise, then at least start walking and increase your activity. this will;help the recovery and healing process.

#5 Make sure that all your questions and instructions are clear and understood. Do not go into surgery with all kinds of doubts and questions about what you are about to undergo. Understand the pros and cons and the recovery process. Never hesitate4 to ask the doctor. This is very important.

These are basic tips that everyone undergoing surgery should follow. There are a million other important things to take into consideration. If you at least do these 5, you are ahead already. Good luck
