Caring for Yourself at Home
Follow all of the instructions your recovery roo nurse gave you and/or the responsible adult with you..
If You Have a Bandaged Hand or Foot
Call 911 for Assistance if You Develop:
During the first 24 hours after your surgery, a responsible adult should stay with you. Please do not stay alone. The post-op nurse will attempt to call you the day after surgery to check on your progress.
We suggest that you eat lightly for the first 24 hours after your procedure. Be sure to follow any specific post-operative instructions your doctor or recovery nurse gives you regarding diet, rest, activities and medication. The hospital will provide you with a written summary of these instructions.
