After the Procedure
- After the surgery, you will be transferred to the recovery room where your blood pressure, breathing rate, and oxygen level will be monitored closely.
- Once you are awake and your vital signs return to normal, you will be transferred to your own private room in the ward.
- Our nurses will take care of you in the ward and provide you with pain medication for incisional pain if needed.
- Your activity will progressively increase as you get out of bed and walk around for longer times. Your food will be advanced to solid foods as tolerated.
- Your surgeon or nurse will give you a schedule for follow-up visits.
- By the time you get home, it is very important to keep the surgical site clean and dry. Your nurse will provide you with specific bathing instructions. The sutures will be taken off at a follow-up visit.
- The surgical site may be a little sore for several days and can be relieved by pain medications prescribed by your surgeon.
- Visit your doctor if you experience:
- Fever and/or chills
- Redness, swelling, or bleeding from the surgical site
- Increase in pain in the surgical site
You surgeon may give you more instructions before you go home.
