when you need an operation...

Tips from Howard:

  • Use pillows to prop up the surgery area to keep it from swelling too bad, even in the car ride home.

  • Keep on top of the pain medication. Once it starts to hurt, it hurts.

  • When you have a cast it can itch a lot from sweating. Use a standing (or box) fan aimed at the cast to help keep the area cool. Really helps when sleeping.

  • My bones hurt more when I am cold. Staying warm helps.​
