After Your Surgery

After your surgery, you'll wake up in the Recovery Room, and you'll be monitored closely, with pain medicine provided as needed.

When it is safe to do so, you will be released from the Recovery Room and guided to a patient room or to Pre-Op Short Stay (POSS) to reunite with friends and family and complete your recovery.

Before you're sent home, all of your instructions will be explained. You will have to be able to tolerate fluids without nausea, get yourself dressed and may be required to urinate before you leave.

After you return home, you might receive a customer satisfaction survey from the hospital. We are committed to providing the best patient care possible, so please share your thoughts with us.
