The First 24 Hours

We strongly suggest that for 24 hours following surgery you do not attempt to make any important decisions, sign legal papers, drive or operate machinery or drink alcoholic beverages.  Rest, make yourself comfortable, and carefully follow your recovery instructions.

Recovery at Home

To ensure a comfortable recovery at home, adhere to your surgeon’s instructions regarding medication, surgical dressings, bathing, diet, and other activities.  During this time, eat lightly and avoid fatty foods.  If you have any problems after you are home, call your surgeon immediately.

Follow-Up

Following your discharge, we will call to see how you are feeling and to answer any questions you may have.  In most instances, you will need to follow-up with your surgeon or physician with a post surgical appointment.
