Meredith: After a trauma, your body is at its most vulnerable. Response time is critical. So you're suddenly surrounded by peopleâ€”doctors, nurses, specialists, techniciansâ€”surgery is a team sport. Everyone pushing for the finish line. Putting you back together again. But surgery is a trauma in and of itself, and once it's over, the real healing begins. It's called recovery. Recovery is not a team sport. It's a solitary distance run. It's long. It's exhausting. And it's lonely as hell.
