You're scheduled for surgery. Maybe you think the outcome of the procedure is completely out of your hands. Think again. How you prepare for surgery can help determine its success. Did you know that the medications you're taking, your diet and your level of exercise can affect your surgery and recovery?
It's a good idea to learn as much as you can from your medical team about your surgical procedure beforehand. You'll have more realistic expectations about how you'll feel and will better understand your role in making a full recovery.
