Surgery is supposed to make you better but even when it’s successful, you may not feel like yourself for some time. You’re likely to be dehydrated and fatigued, and you’ll generally feel unwell. Whether you had emergency surgery, general surgery or cosmetic surgery, recovery will take some time. Following doctor’s orders is essential post-surgery. If your doctor clears you, you should consider getting IV hydration therapy. This doesn’t mean you’ll have to spend more time in hospital. A trained nurse can visit you at your home and administer a customized, IV treatment. In this blog post, we’ll talk about some of the nutrients you need while recovering from surgery and how IV therapy can help you to get them.

The Post-Surgery Healing Process

You need to take extra special care of yourself after you undergo a surgical operation. Not only will the procedure put unusual stress on your body, but simply being in a hospital can put you at risk of infection. Furthermore, sometimes complications develop after surgery. Wounds can get infected and medications can cause adverse side effects. You’ll need to boost your immune system, promote tissue healing, and give your body the vitamins and minerals it needs to function optimally.

Your doctor may recommend that you take oral vitamin supplements to support your recovery. Vitamin C and D are especially important along with calcium, zinc, Vitamins A and K and B-complex vitamins. Eating a diet packed with fruits, vegetables, fish and eggs can help to speed up the healing process. However, there is only so much you can eat, and your body won’t absorb the full dosage when you take supplements.

What’s the solution? You should give thought to getting regular IV hydration therapy. Not only will it provide the fluids and electrolytes you badly need, but the ingredients can be customized to your needs. IV therapy provides a concentrated dose of nutrients and delivers them directly to your bloodstream. Since the solution bypasses the digestive system, your body gets immediate access to the full dosage.
