I have gone under the knife more than once since my cancer diagnosis. The big difference I noticed from the first time to the most recent time is that I have now connected with a number of amazing survivors who were more than willing to share their experiences, and the tips and tricks that they learned in regards to making the surgery itself, and the healing process to follow, easier. So, I thought it would be helpful to have a place where those that are now facing this can go for some advice to prepare themselves.
For example - pillows are your friend post surgery. I don't just mean to sleep on - any time that you are attempting to stand up or sit down hug a pillow and it will make the whole process easier and less painful.
What tips/tricks made the process easier on you?
