Before you can inform your child about what to expect, you must learn what to expect. It is very important to learm about your child's surgery before the procedure by discussing it with the physician(s) overseeing your child's care. Among the key questions are:
- Can you walk me through the procedure? - How long will the surgery take? - How long can I be with my child before surgery?"
This is a great list of things every parent needs to know prior to their child's surgery.
Actually, it makes a lot of sense to know all this stuff before anyone's surgery - even your own !
