We suggest that you eat lightly for the first 24 hours after your procedure. Be sure to follow any specific post-operative instructions your doctor gives you regarding diet, rest, activities, and medication. The surgery center will provide you with written summary of these instructions. In addition, a member of our staff will call you after surgery to see how you are doing.
Dizziness and nausea are normal after receiving anesthetic, therefore you should wait 24 hours after returning home before:
- Driving or operating equipment
- Signing important papers
- Making significant decisions
- Drinking alcoholic beverages
- Taking any medication not prescribed or acknowledged by your surgeon
If you have any questions or concerns, please call your surgeon.
