Description

Are you preparing for a major surgery? Recent medical research indicates that guided imagery is an effective way to maximize the body's healing resources and take the worry out of surgery.

Martin L. Rossman, MD, presents Preparing for Surgery, a series of simple imagery techniques proven to benefit patients with quicker recoveries, fewer complications, less pain, and less bleeding after an operation. Includes three exercises to support a successful surgery and more rapid recovery.

Suggestions for Working with Guided Imagery:

  • For your own safety and the safety of others, never listen to guided-imagery exercises while you are driving or operating dangerous equipment
  • A quiet, darkened place, or an eye pillow, may make it easier to concentrate
  • Try headphones or speakers if you have the choice and see which one you prefer
  • Get comfortable and feel free to move anytime to stay comfortable
  • Let your answering machine answer the phone, turn off the ringer, or unplug the phone
  • Tell your housemates that you'd like to be undisturbed for about 30 minutes, unless there is a genuine emergency
  • Taking some time to write or draw about your experience afterward is a good way to deepen your experience with your guided imagery.

The day after I decided to have double mastectomy and reconstruction surgery, I went into shock. I knew it was the right decision, but emotionally, I wasn't ready. I found Dr. Rossman's "Preparing for Surgery" program online and it literally saved me. I listened to it twice a day for almost two weeks before the surgery as recommended, and it completely changed my attitude. I can't thank Dr. Rossman enough for this program.

I've used this for 2 surgeries and it was very helpful both times. It helped calm my anxiety before, and get through the recovery phase without too much discomfort. Ask if you can have it playing into headphones during the surgeries.

I have found these guided imagery exercises to be very helpful both before and after surgery. Martin speaks with just the right tone of voice.
