After Surgery

Twitter Facebook Linkedin Plusone Pinterest Email

After your surgery is complete, you will be taken to a recovery room in the surgical center while awakening from anesthesia. This may take anywhere from twenty minutes to several hours, depending on the complexity of your surgery.

Your surgeon and medical technicians may take post-operative tests and will assess your state of health before sending you home with a loved one or family member, who will drive. If you have already spoken with your doctor about what you prefer after surgery, including return to work status, exercise, food and special activities, he or she may have provided exact instructions, as such.

You will likely take a series of prescribed oral pain medications, as well as antibiotics, anti-inflammatory medications and other medications. Be prepared to adjust to limited mobility, as well as some incision pain that often follows a surgical procedure. While recovering, be certain to sleep as much as possible to speed healing.

It may take anywhere from several days to perhaps months to completely recover from your surgery and resume your life. You may have to adapt to a new way of living in some cases.

Be sure to talk with your doctor or surgeon immediately after your surgery to update them on your overall progress.
