Once you’ve decided to have tubal ligation reversal surgery, you’ll probably find that it seems like there’s a never-ending list of things that need to be done at home. Once you’ve secured the time off from work (approximately one month), you will want to make other preparations at home that will help make your recovery as smooth as possible. Today, we’d like to offer you some suggestions for things you can do right now that will take a lot off your mind while you’re recovering after your surgery.
Make Meals Ahead of Time
While you’re recovering from your surgery, the most important thing you can do to promote a safe and speedy recovery is to make sure you get enough rest. That means you won’t be doing many of the things you usually do to keep your family running smoothly, such as cooking meals every day. Of course, your family still needs to eat! So, plan on taking a few weekends before your surgery to make some healthy meals and freeze them. That will make dinner preparations a snap, and give you the break you will need.
Enlist the Help of a Friend
While you’re partner is going to be a great source of support for you after you have your surgery, it’s a good idea to enlist the help of a friend to help take some of the burdens off of him too. Maybe you have a close friend who would be willing to come over a few nights a week just to help out around your house. Any help you can schedule before your surgery will help give you peace of mind afterwards.
Stock Up on Movies and Books
It is so important that you take the time to rest and recuperate after you’ve had your surgery. However, sitting around on the couch, or lying in bed will get old after a while. Stock up on movies and books to ensure that you always have something to do while you’re working on recovering from your surgery. This is a great time to catch up on those television shows you always seem too busy to watch too.
