5 Smart Things to Do While Recovering from Surgery

  1. Watch a bunch of Ted Talks. They’re all good; you’ll learn and be inspired.
  2. Read as much as possible, but take it a step further, and spend more time reading what others have recommended to you.
  3. If you’re feeling up to it, write. You don’t have to share it (via blog or social network) but capture what you’re going through. Sharing does help the healing process so consider sharing with a select group of friends. Empathy does wonders.
  4. Talk to a different close friend or colleague every single day — in person if you can coerce them to visit you — or on the phone at the very least.
  5. Take some time for introspection. Not much has forced me to be still and think like being grounded to bed for a couple of weeks. It took me awhile to get over simply being frustrated by that and settling down enough to use the time and appreciate it as an opportunity to quietly think, plan and prioritize.

    Congratulations on your hemorrhoidectomy…you’ll never regret the discomfort of recovery. After mine, I wondered why I had suffered in silence for so long before. Yeah to a rear free of the pain and ickiness that accompany hemorrhoids!
