It has been well documented that patients recover most successfully from surgery when they can quickly become mobile and return to their home environments. It is our goal to get you in a comfortable place for rest and recovery as soon as we can.
Following surgery, you will be transferred to our recovery room for monitoring. The length of your stay will be determined by the type of anesthesia you received, and our nurses will evaluate your readiness for discharge before sending you home. You may feel sleepy for 24 hours after surgery. This is normal due to the medications you received both during and after your surgery. An adult should drive you home and stay with you for 24 hours following surgery. Rest should be your main focus at this time.
