Preparation for Wrist Surgery
Your doctor will make recommendations for you to follow in preparation for your surgery. Because each surgery is different, it is important that you follow the instructions given to you that relate to your treatment. In many cases, the doctor may address the following:
- Medications and supplements – Your physician may suggest that you stop taking certain medications and supplements prior to surgery. Ask your physician what applies to you.
- Fasting – The time you may need to fast depends on the type of wrist surgery you are having. Follow the instructions provided by your physician to avoid the postponement of your surgery.
- Going home – Discuss with your doctor about the possible need to arrange a ride home after the procedure.
Your orthopedic wrist specialist may recommend physical therapy after a surgical procedure to quickly regain mobility and function of the wrist. It is important that you complete the assigned exercises to complete the final step in the treatment process and regain the complete use of your wrist.
