Using the guide
If you’re new to all this, we recommend you read the guide from start to finish so you don’t miss anything important. Even if it isn’t your first time, it won’t hurt to get a refresh.
The info here is generic – it may not all be relevant to your condition, treatment or recovery; that kind of detailed advice needs to come from your healthcare team.
