Preparing for Shoulder Surgery
Buy a small bottle of Phisohex from the chemist.
Each morning in the shower (for 7 days leading up to and including the day of your operation), wash the affected shoulder with the Phisohex, using it like liquid soap.
The whole shoulder area needs to be washed, including the arm pit, up the neck to the jaw and down the arm to the elbow. Make sure you always rinse it off thoroughly.
If you have a known allergy to Phisohex, please contact our office – do not use this product.
Stop use if a rash occurs. Do not get sunburnt shoulders. If there are any pimples or areas of broken skin, please contact your doctor.
