Physical help

Do not overexert yourself when recovering from surgery or a medical procedure. Always follow your doctor’s advice regarding what and how much movement is acceptable. You could injure yourself and cause a lot of pain if you are not careful.

Rather ask for assistance when attempting to move. Your loved one will be more than happy to help you find comfort.

Similarly, do not attempt to move very heavy objects on your own. Asking for help can prevent possible strain and injury to your muscles.

Consider employing a helper if you are unable to perform all the household tasks. Alternatively, create a system to share household tasks among all able family members.
