I am getting a 30 minute outpatient surgery for deviated septum. I asked pre-op nurse if I could workout before surgery. To get nervous energy out of my system. She said no excercise 3 hours before surgery! Why would excercise be bad? It would relax me before surgery!
Why Did the Pre-op Nurse Say No Exercise Before Surgery?
