Lawrenceville, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 06/26/2019 -- For seniors, surgery can take quite a toll on the body, which is why Goodwill Home Medical recommends they follow post-surgery instructions provided by their physician. The company carries an assortment of gently-used medical equipment that seniors will find useful in their recovery process.
In most cases, the recovery process for seniors is more detailed and comprehensive, as the body takes longer to heal with age. Patients who properly carry out post-op orders and continue to care for themselves at home can significantly increase their chances of successful recovery. To avoid unexpected complications, seniors should follow their personalized treatment instructions, regardless of whether or not they feel they are necessary.
Seniors may feel discomfort upon returning home; however, there are ways to manage this pain, which a doctor will review. Doctors will often prescribe prescriptions for pain relief after surgery. It is imperative to have any medications filled immediately, as it can significantly reduce pain levels. Incisions that are not properly cared for are prone to infection, which is why it is important to inspect the area throughout the day to ensure it is healing properly.
One key instruction that many seniors tend to forget is attending their follow up appointments. These appointments are crucial after surgery, as it allows a doctor to monitor the progress of the recovery. The doctor will also be able to inspect wounds, check for any signs of infection or fever, and modify medications if necessary.
Those looking for gently-used medical equipment to aid in their recovery process should visit Goodwill Home Medical for their assortment of donated goods. Visit their website at https://www.goodwillhomemedical.org/ to browse through their list of gently-used and unused donated items.
