Why Post-Surgical Care Is Important

Why Post-Surgical Care Is Important

Most people think that the worst is over once a person has survived a surgery. However, it is still important that the patient receives care and monitoring after the surgery.

As a provider of home care services in Georgia we make sure to look out for the common discomforts that patients experience post-surgery and any possible signs of complications.

Common discomforts after surgery often include:

  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Sore throat and thirst
  • Soreness, pain, and swelling around the incision site
  • Restlessness and sleeplessness
  • Constipation and gas

These symptoms often depend on the type of surgery performed and are normal post-surgery. These should not be confused with serious signs of complications which include:

  • Shock or a severe drop in blood pressure
  • Hemorrhage or bleeding
  • Wound infection
  • Deep vein thrombosis or when a blood clots in a large vein
  • Inability to empty the bladder
