Preparing for Thymectomy Recovery
My thymectomy consultation on Friday went splendidly, and I will be getting the surgery in two to three weeks. Suddenly, I have become more anxious about the process over the weekend than I have yet to be. Not necessarily about complications, I feel confident in my surgery team. I am nervous that the length of the hospital stay will be too much for my anxiety and being driven crazy the following two months over lack of ability and independence.
I am currently seeking to use the upcoming few weeks to plan to make my recovery more comfortable. So far on my list is to have my laptop on a table plugged in at a good height, a shower chair, frozen meals that I can microwave on paper plates, a water jug at my waist height with paper cups. Do you have any post-thymectomy suggestions to make recovery more pleasant? Additionally, how long would you recommend the assistance of a caregiver following returning home from surgery?
