Also, if a patient over extends himself or herself it will prolong the recovery. A patient needs to let someone help them. And they don’t necessarily need someone with them 24/7. For caregivers who go to the pre-op educational class, they can ask questions and hear other families’ questions. It helps everyone be on the same page.
