Surgery can range from a simple tooth extraction to an organ transplant. Some surgery may be essential to ensure a person’s quality of life, whereas other procedures may be an optional form of treatment or simply cosmetic. Minor surgery may only require local anaesthetic, while major surgery usually requires general anaesthetic, where the patient is unconscious. Both the surgery itself and the anaesthesia can cause symptoms in the patient as they are recovering. Treatment can be used both before and after undergoing surgery in order to help the procedure go successfully and support the healing process.
After surgery, patients can experience confusion, a sore throat and nausea as they start to come around. Pain will appear once the effects of the anaesthetic have worn off and bruising and swelling may develop later. Blood clots are a risk if the patient is lying down for a long time. The time it takes a person to recover and to be able to get back to their normal life depends on what kind of surgery they have had. Anaesthesia can cause side effects such as diarrhoea and urinary difficulties. Surgical wounds are at risk of becoming infected if not properly cared for.

Supplements to take
If a person is in good general health before having surgery, it is more likely that the procedure will be successful and that they will make a good recovery. Soon after having surgery, pain-killing medication is often given and oxygen or sickness medication may be offered to ease symptoms. It may be necessary to continue taking pain relief for a while after being discharged to help manage any discomfort. Before and after having an operation, consuming a nutrient-rich diet containing a range of fruits and vegetables, can help the body to repair itself and support the immune system. It is also essential to keep well hydrated by drinking plenty of water. The sooner a person gets mobile again after having surgery, the quicker they are likely to recover. That said, it is important not to do too much too soon as this can be counterproductive to recovery. It is vital to follow the instructions given by doctors after surgery and to keep to any follow-up appointments. Any wounds need to be cared for correctly to reduce the risk of further complications such as infection; this may include changing bandages at home and ensuring that the area is kept relatively clean. Smoking is to be avoided, especially when the body is trying to recover. Trying to avoid stress, perhaps by using relaxation techniques, will also help reduce the strain on the body.
Experiences and case studies
One patient who was having 4 teeth implanted in the lower jaw had bioresonance therapy before and one day after surgery. As a result, they didn’t need to take any pain-killers or antibiotics and were able to go back to work.
