Tips to Help Recover from Surgery

Written By: Dr. Patches

It's important for kids to take care of themselves after surgical procedures. After a tonsillectomy, kids have to drink a lot of water and stay hydrated, but this can be hard since their throat will still be a little bit sore. Sometimes in order to get better, kids have to do things that aren’t fun or that even could hurt, so at Tiny Docs we make sure to explain the ‘why’ behind everything we do. Kids are smart and curious, so ‘why’ can be a powerful tool to help them make good decisions about their health. We tell kids to always ask the doctor lots of questions, and if they don’t understand something, keep asking! Doctors are nice people who just want to help, so we never mind answering any question that might help kids be less scared!
