Rehab and Recovery: What to Expect After Surgery

If you or a loved one are scheduled to receive a surgery, you’re likely going through a number of thoughts and emotions. You may be asking yourself what you should expect, how you are going to manage pain, who will help you around the house and whether or not you should go into a rehabilitation program until you are more stable and better on your feet. While the answer may not always be simple, it’s important to consider these questions so you are prepared for what to expect, can recover in a safe and timely manner and get back to your active and engaging lifestyle.
