About Our Site
AboutOperations was formed to offer a unique reference point on how to prepare for and recover from an operation.
AboutOperations is a unique reference point on how to prepare for and recover from an operation. It looks at all aspects of surgery, including types of surgery, major operations, procedures used if you have cancer, organ transplants and operations carried out during a short day visit.
No other UK-based resource exists to provide such an extensive and informative range of articles. Our writers have put together all the information you need. Whether you are going into hospital for an operation soon, you have recently had surgery, or you are finding it difficult to cope with the long-term after-effects of your treatment, AboutOperations will prove a valuable resource.
Effective and thorough preparation can make a huge difference. Find out about medical consent, know exactly what and when you can eat and drink before you go into hospital, plan ahead for when you come home. Understanding more about the operation you are due to have will also help you ask questions and to assist you in planning what to take with you to hospital. If you have to stay in for an extended period, mental preparation can be just as important and our experts have plenty of sound advice to help you cope.
Recovering after surgery can take longer than you think and physiological issues can be more difficult than the physical problems. You will find that your lifestyle will need to change immediately after a major operation, and possibly for quite a time afterwards. AboutOperations looks sensitively at how to get over a miscarriage, coping after an abortion and how to aid healing and avoid scarring.
