In an American study, researchers showed that people who experience anxiety and fear of surgery longer be restored and have pain.
It is known that after the surgeon makes an incision in the body begins to develop compounds that are aimed at restoring the injury. And the faster will be the process of healing, the faster the patient's condition will be better. After conducting research among the patients who had a hernia removed, the researchers concluded that stress has a negative impact on the recovery process.
