We’re doing our best to help provide clients with a high level of care during the coronavirus pandemic, and as expected, they have had some questions for us along the way. In today’s blog, we discuss one of the more common questions patients have in the midst of this pandemic – what to do if your surgical procedure has been delayed or postponed as a result of COVID-19.
Many hospitals and clinics stopped performing surgery during the pandemic or limited their surgeries to those with the biggest needs. If your surgery has been delayed or postponed, you may feel like you’re in limbo just waiting for your surgery date to arrive. However, there’s still plenty you can do to help put yourself in the best position to make a full recovery after surgery. Dive into a pre-surgical PT routine to help strengthen muscles you’ll call on after surgery, and make sure you’re still getting regular exercise to help maintain an optimal weight.
Managing pain is another significant issue that many patients struggle with as they wait for surgery. If you find yourself in this situation, make an appointment with a pain management doctor who can recommend options for keeping your pain at bay while you await your procedure.
