Taking proper care of ourselves after surgery can help our bodies improve quicker and prevent further issues. Many of the most important steps in recovering from an injury take place after leaving the hospital and once we are out of the care and supervision of an experienced health professional.
Depending on the type of surgery, there are several things we can do to improve our outcomes, including keeping our doctor's instructions, not missing follow up appointments, eating healthy, and exercising within our ability. With improvements in technology, we can also now track the majority of our activity, and how our health and vitals are throughout. A fantastic tool that can help us do so is the Fitbit Versa 2 Health and Fitness Smartwatch with Heart Rate, Music, Alexa Built-In, Sleep and Swim Tracking depicted in the image below. The device can show heart rate, time asleep and restlessness, steps, calories burned, hourly activity, and more!
