What To Do After Surgery

  • You will be discharged 1-2 hours following your procedure or when you meet criteria for dismissal. It is normal to feel weak and drowsy, which is why you must have someone with you to drive you home after your surgery.
  • Please follow the written instructions you receive from your surgeon and the center’s staff for your care that may include activity, medication, diet and rest. Contact your physician if you have any questions or problems.
  • One to two days after your surgery, a nurse from MHSC will contact you to check your progress and answer your questions.
  • Do not drive, smoke, drink alcoholic beverages or operate machinery for 24 hours following surgery.
  • Remember to make an appointment for a follow-up visit with your surgeon if one was not already made for you.
