After Your Surgery

To hasten your recovery we recommend that you rest comfortably as soon as you get home. You may begin a regular diet and resume normal activities when you and your physician determine you are ready. A day or so after your procedure a nurse will contact you to check on your recovery progress. Dizziness and nausea are normal after surgery. If you received anesthesia, please wait at least 24 hours before:

  • Driving or operating equipment
  • Signing important papers
  • Making significant decisions
  • Drinking alcohol – do not drink with narcotics
  • Taking any medications not prescribed or acknowledged by your physician
