#144 – Walking Papers

The doctor has finally given you the okay to go home from the hospital.

You'll be issued a set of walking papers - a Post Surgical To Do List - before you walk or roll out the door.

The instructions are important and should be followed. They include things to watch for post-surgery, exercise, medications, restrictions, limitations and follow-up appointments.

That To Do List is a crucial part of your recovery. If you start getting antsy, I've found it helpful to remember that they've had considerably more experience at this than I have!
