At Home After Surgery

We suggest that you eat lightly for the first 24 hours after your procedure. Be sure to follow any specific post-operative instructions your physician gives you regarding diet, rest, activities and medication. The surgery center will provide you with a written summary of these instructions. In addition, a member of our staff will call you the day after surgery to see how you are doing.
Dizziness and nausea are normal after receiving anesthesia; therefore, you should wait 24 hours after returning home before:

  • driving or operating equipment
  • signing important papers
  • making significant decisions
  • drinking alcoholic beverages

If you have questions or concerns, please call your surgeon
