Operative Care

These guidelines are made for you to understand what will happen after your surgery. Read carefully and follow the instructions correctly. Contact your doctor in case of questions or problems.

Postoperative Care:

  • It is very important that you follow your doctor’s instructions after you leave the hospital. Take medications as prescribed and keep your aftercare appointments. Don’t overdo it if you’ve been instructed to rest, but don’t neglect physical activity if you’ve been given the go ahead. Resume normal activities as advised. Most of the time, a gradual return to your normal routine is recommended.
  • While recuperating, be sure to notify your health care provider if you develop a fever, increased pain, or bleeding at the surgical site. Don’t hesitate to contact your doctor if you have questions or aren’t recovering as well as expected.
