Having a caregiver after surgery helps you manage tasks and decisions. But you don't always have to depend on just your loved ones to provide this care.   We’re frequently asked questions about what to do before and after surgery, including whether a patient need to have someone travel with them to Charleston for surgery. Our answer has always been yes, but after meet June Thorpe, RN with PostOpNursing, we've realized that we may have to change this answer.   As the founder of PostOpNursing and a registered nurse of 35 years, June Thorpe, RN first saw the need for professional post-op care in Charleston in a very personal way. Her sister had a procedure a few years ago. Because she had to handle everything on her own, her sister was overwhelmed and felt like she couldn't properly take care of herself after surgery.   Her sister needed help, and because of her story, June is now dedicated to helping others recover from plastic and elective surgeries. She believes that the key to healing well is personalized postoperative care, and she is committed to providing the highest quality of care for each of her patients. PostOpNursing is ready to help you navigate your recovery and provide customized, at-home care that keeps you comfortable while you heal!

They also provide nutritional counseling to promote healthy healing.   PostOpNursing also goes beyond just providing medical assistance. Because the hospital requires you to have a responsible adult present for discharge, they will pick you up from the hospital and get you to where you are staying after surgery. They can also take you to postoperative appointments and act as a liaison between you and your doctor.   They’ll provide oversight and help with decision-making during these visits by talking with your doctor and providing wellness information. They’re also able to contact your physician about health concerns and questions, as well as any additional medication needs.   Your RN is someone you can depend on for postoperative care.
