I had my hysterectomy this week, recorded this video a day before the surgery and got around sharing my tips with you today how I prepare.
This is not my first rodeo, just last year I had a knee surgery (my second) so over time I learned how to prepare my body best for a quick and optimal recovery.
What I do:
A colon cleanse!!!
I start early the day before surgery so I am clean and not having any bowel movements the day of surgery
Why I cleanse?
Because the anesthesia slows the movement of digestion and elimination especially with any abdominal surgery. I always feel recovery is easier without the toxins sitting in my colon. Also elimination can be difficult after surgery as well due to gas and fluids.
Products and remedies I use:
Drink Smooth Move tea from @tradmedicinals the day before and after surgery
I use this the day before surgery. I use either smooth move or magic lax (not the entire container like you do with a colonoscopy).
Sip on Bone broth
The day before and after surgery I sip chicken end beef bone broth for recovery.
The day before I am also taking electrolytes for optimal hydration.
Please consult with your doctor about any of those options.
