• Where possible we would like your body to return back to its normal functions.
  • We will offer sips of fluid initially and then build up to you drinking fluids freely as the day goes on.
  • We advise you to have small tastes of food (not full meals which can be too much and make you feel sick).
  • Movement and siting out of bed for a short period is important - this will initially be done under the supervision of staff so we now you are steady on your feet.

Your ward may have an exercise alley - we really encourage you, with the help of a nurse or physiotherapist or one of your visitors if needed, to got to exercise alley several times per day and just do what you can at each visit.
