Having surgery makes many people nervous or anxious. Knowing what to expect can help.
Your surgeon will have specific instructions for you to follow, including but not limited to:
Following the operation, you will awake in the recovery room. You will be in recovery for a minimum of one hour before taken to your room.
Your family will be with you until you go to the operating room. At that time, they will be shown to the surgical waiting area. Your family, in most cases, will not see you until you are brought to a regular hospital room. The surgeon will come to talk to them following your surgery, while you are in the recovery room.
