After Surgery

  • Before you leave the center, you will be given written instructions for your care after discharge.

  • When you return home, follow your doctor’s instructions regarding diet, medications and activity.

  • Do not drive a car, drink alcoholic beverages, operate machinery, sign legal documents, or make critical decisions until the morning after your procedure.

  • If you have any questions or problems after your procedure, please contact your physician.  If you call the physician after business hours, the answering service pages the physician on call who then calls you back.

  • If any tissue was removed during your procedure, your physician’s office will call you with the results.

  • Following discharge, your accompanying adult should drive you home and remain with you for 4-6 hours after your procedure.
