After your Surgery
You will be closely monitored until you are in stable condition, then you will be discharged home. Most patients are discharged one to two hours after surgery, however, it is not unusual to experience sleepiness and dizziness for 12 to 24 hours after receiving anesthesia.
You will receive verbal and written post-surgical care instructions (please follow these instructions). Your escort must be available to discuss and sign these instructions before you will be allowed to go home.
If you experience anything unusual after your surgery, please call your surgeon or go to the nearest emergency room.
A nurse from La Veta Surgical Center will call you one to two days after your surgery to follow your recovery.
