People are never quite ready to care for themselves when they return home from the hospital, especially after surgery. Pain and side effects from medications can make it very difficult to provide necessary self-care and if you overexert yourself, you could suffer a setback and end up back in the hospital. Those who return home from a surgery or hospital stay need to rest and ensure that they make a full recovery. Receiving additional care from a professional can help ensure that you recover with no setbacks.
