You can be frail if you are experiencing a decline in your physical, mental, and social well-being. This can negatively affect or prolong your recovery after surgery. 

 You can be frail if you are:

  • feeling very tired
  • take multiple medications
  • use an aid to walk or feel like you are ‘slowing down’
  • having trouble walking up stairs, or
  • losing weight without meaning to

It is important to be as healthy as possible before surgery. Please contact your GP to address frailty and improve your recovery.
