Recovery after Surgery

  • You will rest in our recovery are under the care of our trained staff. An anesthesiologist will monitor your condition.
  • A relative or friend may join you in the recovery room as soon as deemed medically appropriate.
  • The nurses and doctors will answer you/your family member’s questions and give you post-operative instructions. You will receive a written copy of these instructions.
  • Pediatric patients often wake up agitated and crying. This is a normal response in children who have had surgery. Please feel free to speak to your nurse, or physician about your concerns.
  • You may be sleepy after your surgery, even after spending time in the recovery room. Please arrange for an adult family member or friend to drive you home.
