Good care and assistance at home is important to help you recover quickly
Although your pain will be managed, you should take care not to strain yourself during recovery. If you live alone or have additional care needs, and do not have someone to stay with you when you leave hospital, you may need to go to a rehabilitation centre or request home care. Just ask your healthcare team for advice and support on rehabilitation centres.
If you want to find out any more information or support on any of the points discussed on this page you can download the ACT EOS Recovery Guide.
