Many people cannot plan ahead for surgery beause it is last-minut and urgent. However, if you do have some advance notice start making plans to use music before, during and after the surgery. There is lots of documentation that using music through headphones before, during and after surgery can greatly reduce the amount of anxiety medication needed before, the amount of anesthesia needed during and the amount of pain medication needed afterwards.
For more information, order my tape set, CD, or download on how to talk with your doctor before the procedure and then also provides the music that I recommend for you to listen to during the procedure. Go to www.HealingMusicEnterprises.com/products/music_surgery/music_surgery.html
You can also purchase consulting time with me on the website. Best wishes for a healthy result if you’re planning to have surgery.
