You will rest in our recovery room, under the care of specially trained nurses. Your anesthesiologist will monitor your condition.
Our staff will answer your questions and give you postoperative instructions as ordered by your physician. You will receive a written copy of these instructions.
You may be dizzy or sleepy after your surgery, even after spending time in the recovery room. Please have a responsible adult with you to drive you home.
Returning Home From Surgery
Even though you may feel fine, have someone plan to stay at home with you through the night. Do not make any important decisions, consume alcoholic beverages, take medications not prescribed by your surgeon, drive or operate machinery during the 24- hour period following your surgery.
Plan to take it easy for a few days, as the majority of patients do not feel up to their typical activities right away, usually due to general tiredness or surgical discomfort.
If you have any questions after you have left Executive Surgery Center, you must call your physician for answers. If you have any serious complications, call 911 or go to the emergency room at the hospital of your choice immediately. Remember, it is very likely that you will have additional questions once you get home and results from any tests may take several days to process. Therefore, it is a very good idea to schedule a follow up appointment with your physician a few days after your procedure.
