Having surgery, even for something that could be considered minor, is a frightening experience. It can remind you of your own mortality or fragility.
It can bring about thoughts of what might happen or will you get through it. Then, if it’s major surgery, there’s the fear of what will happen afterwards and the recovery.
It’s an understandably worrying time for anyone going through it. So if you know of anyone who is facing surgery, or has been through it, then you will probably want to wish them well, to get better and offer some reassurance.
One of the best ways to do this is with a thoughtful get well card. It allows you to write a message and let the person know you’re thinking of them.
But if you’re going to send the recuperating patient a get well soon card and message then you might be struggling with what to write or say. Knowing the right words to use, what to avoid saying, how to make them feel better etc. can be tough.
