After your surgery you will recover in a same day surgery bed or your bed on a nursing unit, depending on the nature of your surgery. Post-op nurses will monitor your pain, how well you are breathing, and if you will be able to get up and walk after surgery. These three criteria are the basis on which we can discharge you from the hospital. We work with you to keep your pain at a tolerable level, your breathing easy and unlabored, and make sure you will be able to walk without difficulty.
You will receive a packet with specific instructions from your surgeon and some instructions from the hospital when you are discharged to go home. The nurse will go over these instructions with you before you leave and answer any of your questions.
We need to have your stomach as empty and free from acid before surgery. The acid in your stomach can be especially dangerous while you are under anesthesia.
DO take your heart, blood pressure, asthma, or seizure medications with a sip of water on the morning of your procedure. DO NOT take any other medications unless directed by your physician.
We will work with you to take care of any need you may have. Interpretation services are free and available 24 hours a day.
