Medina's Tip pf the day!
Why be hydrated is so important after a surgery?
Being well hydrated prevents potentially dangerous post surgical complications such as deep vein thrombosis is the formation of a clot in the major veins of the legs and thighs mainly, and if this is apparent lung can then create a pulmonary embolism.
To understand, if we have little liquid blood be thicker and more solid component causing the formation of "lumps" or packages that occlude the blood return. If we have the blood more "watery" is less likely that these packings are formed.
Love, Dr. Medina
