Because of your operation, the chances are you’ll be a lot more aware of your body and how it works.
Right now is a really good time to build on the knowledge you’ve gained and make small changes to your lifestyle that can prevent you from experiencing certain health problems in the future. You can do this by:
- Any exercise – even if it’s just a few short walks each day – really will make a difference to your health.
- Improving your diet – get 5 portions of fresh fruit and veg per day.
- Quitting smoking - NHS Stop Smoking Services are one of the most effective ways to stop for good – and they’re free. Your doctor will be happy to help you.
