Recovery and Going Home
After the surgery you will be taken to the recovery room. In this room your condition and progress will be cautiously monitored. An average patient stays in the recovery room for 1-3 hours before they are discharged. But, please note that the length of time spent in the recovery room will depend upon the type of surgery you had.
You will not be discharged until you are recovered enough and have enough strength to leave the center.
When it is time to leave the surgery center, a staff member will make sure to provide all the information about the care you should take when you return home. The staff member will also help you get safely into your family’s or friend’s car.
Please make sure that the person who will drive you home is a reasonable adult, capable of taking proper care of you.
