  • Thanks for sharing this key information here. As we age, it becomes incredibly important to maintain your health and make sure you’re capable of handling things like surgery. Good to see there’s a resource out there for elderly people.

  • I’d say it’s important at any age for any surgery, but yes, especially the elderly. There is no way to actively participate in rehab on those drugs.
