Once you are discharged from the surgery center and are either taken home or a post-operative recuperation facility, your healing and recovery will begin.
Once home, you may follow a series of recovery steps as outlined by your doctor. These will likely include information about what medications to take and when, what foods and supplements to take or avoid, as well as incision care, bathing, exercise and more. In some cases, it is vital to have either a relative or nurse care for you in the immediate days after your operation.
You may experience either little or significant pain during the course of your recovery period, depending on your operation. Some pain can be managed with oral medications, while others may require outside physical therapy that will be administered over the next weeks or months.
Recovery may take between a few days to multiple weeks or even months, depending on the type or complexity of your surgery. Be sure to stay in touch with both your doctor, as well as key medical support staff to stay on track towards great health!
