Hi Rachel!
welcome to HCM.children need to be prepared about all the parts of surgery to allay their fears and help them cope with the stress of surgery and post op.Kids of all ages cope much better if they have an idea of what's going to happen and why it's necessary. To do that, prepare yourself first and correct any misconceptions of your own.Explain nicely why this procedure is done-pain relief,possible complications etc..clearly but less gruesomely,Avoid frightening language.Encourage your teen to read up on the medical condition and share the information with the family. Reading and sharing information is an excellent coping mechanism.take care.
