Our battle with the novel Coronavirus continues. It has been more than a year since the virus was first detected in Wuhan city of China that spread across the globe. Its impact was much felt in our daily lives as we saw tremendous changes in the way we live, interact, do business, and feel. But beyond these, the matters of health played a significant role. Well, COVID19 now in its second wave has been raging its wrath upon us. What we now see is a phenomenon is called ‘Long COVID’, which has had a debilitating effect on patient’s lives.
Dr. Farah Ingale, Director-Internal Medicine, Hiranandani Hospital, Vashi – A Fortis Network Hospital says that in the past year, the whole stress has been made on safeguarding everyone from COVID and post-COVID syndrome. However, the deadly causes of the virus has put light on the need of dealing with COVID even post recovery or testing negative. With constant research and efforts made to understand the virus and its true nature, we have determined some of its impact on health - such as neurological issues, thyroid malfunctioning, chronic pulmonary disorders, cardiac issues, mental health, and more.
But, is complete recovery possible after COVID transmission? To counter the same distressing impact of COVID, the National Health Service has come up with a proper plan to help people recover better. That plan is their 3-P plan guideline focuses on Pace-Plan-Prioritize.
National Health Service, to the rescue, has some tips to help patients who’ve recovered from COVID19 understand and brace for post-COVID complications. Know the 3-P plan guideline stated by the National Health Service:
- Pace: Take your own time to get back to normal life after making recovery. Do not force your body or yourself to get back to normal work schedules immediately. The best way to tackle this is to take proper breaks between two tasks, do not try to start another task immediately after finishing one.
- Plan: Plan your chores spanning a week. Do not try to finish it all in one go. Plan your house in such a way that the daily-need items are easily available and accessible. This will reduce the stress on body while performing daily tasks and chores.
- Prioritize: Split your to-do list. Know what you can do on your own and what you need help for. Try to keep strenous and outdoor tasks for others.
Lastly, continue your teleconsultation with your doctors regularly and update them about your health vitals. The doctors need to access your post-COVID recovery. Ensure medication adherence for complete recovery. Don’t miss your doctor appointments, eat healthy, sleep well, and stay positive.
