post op tips
REST REST REST and when you get tired of resting, take a nap.
Watch some of your favorite movies.
Read a good book.
Read a good magazine.
Go to bed when you get home and be pampered.
Let your spouse/relative/good friend, wait on you hand and foot if possible. Remember, even though an endometrial ablation is a minor surgery, it is still surgery, so soak up all the help you can get.
Use your heating pad for any cramping you may experience.
If given pain medication, make sure to take it before the pain starts - stay on top of the pain.
Avoid lifting - I know that many doctors say that you can lift all you want, but mine said no and I have read countless posts in the Discussion Forums of this Web Site where women lift things and they end up having problems.
When you return to work - do so on a modified schedule if you can.
No tampons and no intercourse for as long as the doctor says to avoid...this prevents infection. Take that very seriously and LISTEN to your doctor.
