A Day or a Night Before Hysterectomy Surgery

  1. Eat Less

No Smoking

Before undertaking any operation, the patient must take anaesthesia. And for the successful function of anaesthesia, the patient must have an ample supply of oxygen and a proper blood-flowing system. Without this there might be complications in the surgery and after surgery.

And smoking acts as a prime source of those complications. it makes it hard for you to breathe against the lungs compromised by smoke, which could take a toll on your life while you are still in surgery. Smoking reduces the flow of blood, which will develop infections near the surgery area as it takes more time to recover due to the improper blood system. 

Weight Loss

If you are suffering from obesity, then reducing your weight can have additional benefits in your surgery. Some of the complications are:

  • Fatty Tissues make it hard for the doctor to find the right veins to give anaesthesia. Thus, increasing the time of the surgery.
  • The blood loss would be more as it takes more time to perform the surgery since doctors require extra time to find the right part to operate on through the fatty tissues. 

It is always advisable to consult the doctor before starting any diet. It will prevent you from taking any wrong diet that can otherwise affect you.

Rest More

Resting plays a vital role before surgery. You will have many things to care about, due to which the stress levels and anxiety would be more, and these factors are the worst enemies of a successful surgery.  

Eat well-balanced diet food

You do not need to live on a heavy diet. Taking rich protein foods can help you because proteins help you rebuild the lost cells in the surgery. Also, you must focus on a well-balanced diet containing multiple varieties. Your diet system should include vegetables, grains, fruits, and healthy fats like olive oil, seeds, and nuts.

Eat Less

One of the common reasons why you should not eat before surgery is because of the problem anaesthesia can cause. Under anaesthesia, your entire body stops working, which means the digestion of the food will stop, either. And it reacts with anaesthesia. Others like aspiration can also cause severe problems. 

It is integral that you take these precautions before hysterectomy treatment in Chennai for a successful surgery.
