Scheduled your oral surgery near the holidays and now you’re worried it will affect your holiday season? Many of us choose to schedule surgery around a break, with good reason. It gives us a chance to rest, relax and heal.
We often hear that people are worried about eating holiday meals… but you just need to be strategic with it. Focus on the softer foods such as yams, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, stuffing, peas, etc. Don’t forget the pumpkin pie or cheesecake! Focus on getting enough fluids, as well.
The main thing to keep in mind is that you need to give yourself time to relax. This is not the time to join in the family basketball game. Enjoy being a spectator or encourage the family to join you in a board game or a game of cards. Realize that pushing yourself too hard right now might delay healing. If you notice bleeding or swelling increasing, listen to your body telling you you need to slow down. If you are having issues, please review post-op info here or call Rockcliff at 828-255-7781.
Remember, self-care this holiday season is important. You’ll be up and running before you know it!
