It is a major undertaking and a drain on one’s physical reserves. Getting into the best physical condition must be the primary goal in the patient’s mind. This is no less a task than an athlete getting into shape for a competition.” “Good mental health is as important as good physical health, and if at all possible this would be a good time to get away for a week or two. You may also find it helpful to speak with someone who has undergone the surgery and is now fully recovered.”
