Pre-Operation planning General

- It will take time to regain full use of your hand after surgery.

- With some simple preparation, routine tasks during the days following your surgery need not be difficult.

- The recovery time from different operations varies greatly so discuss this with your surgeon.

- Put all regular medications in bottles with regular ( Non childproof) caps.

             - Childproof caps will be hard to open with one hand.

             - Make sure you keep them well away from children.

- Prepare foods that do not require both hands to cut and eat.

- You might consider investing in an electric can opener so only one hand is needed to open cans for you or your pets.
