What to Expect at Home

It is not unusual to feel dizzy and sleepy following your surgery and even after you are discharged. Your designated caregiver will provide an important service by assisting you with any activities during the first 24 hours. You should not attempt to drive a car, operate any machinery, sign any important papers or make any important decisions for at least 24 hours following your surgery. 

Avoid drinking alcohol or taking any medications not prescribed by your doctor for 24 hours following your surgery.

If you experience any complications call your physician or go to one of our Emergency facilities.

Following your outpatient surgery, a nurse may contact you to check on your recovery and ask about your experience at our facility.

Thank you for choosing Roper Saint Francis Healthcare. Our goal is to provide you with safe and excellent care.
