Cough and deep breathing
A physiotherapist is going to show you some deep breathing exercises. Please pay attention and practice these 3 times a day before your operation. Participating in these exercises will reduce the chances of you getting a chest infection. After your operation you will have physiotherapy. Please continue your deep breathing and coughing exercises 3 times a day in order to maximise your chances of a quick recovery and discharge home.
After the operation you need to sit up and get out of bed day 1.
