Healing, in any form, requires the positive action of both body and mind. Never before has this maxim been so relevant. I had my first surgery 2 weeks ago to repair a torn shoulder labrum - the recovery process so far has shown me that the mind plays an essential role in healing the body. And there’s research to back this up! 🌱 Last year the British Journal of Surgery published study results on the ‘Association between psychological health and wound complications after surgery’ (2017). The study concluded that patients with pre-existing anxiety or depression were more likely to have post-surgical complications. That is not to say all persons who suffer mental health issues will encounter complications but it does highlight the importance of pre and post surgical mental health. 🌿 Since the process of surgery and recovery is taxing on even the most mentally fit, it can exasperate pre existing conditions. The fatigue, the pain, the frustration can take their toll. 🌱 During the healing process it becomes more important than ever to find ways to exercise mental fitness and harness the power of positive thinking. 🌿 Make small goals and celebrate successes. Be grateful for the people, around you (and the NHS 🙌🏻). Read books you can’t put down and films you’ll want to watch again and again. But most importantly, Remember and reaffirm the goals of the surgery. 🌱 Luckily my surgery was relatively minor. My keyhole stitches are healing well - I got to see these two gems last night @lauren.elsie.24 @carthorse_91 I have an excellent carer @hemznz ❤️ and seeing my cousin @the_bondi_unicorn for the first time in 6 months! 🌿 The pain, discomfort and frustration are still real and it will be 4 more weeks in a sling and many months of physio till I’m back to my best but so worth it in the end. Stay sane, be patient and believe your body is healing. ⚖️😀 #tornlabrum#tornlabrumproblems#staypositive#mentalhealth#wellness#phdlife
