Once you’re in stable condition, you will be discharged. Most patients are discharged one to three hours after surgery.
You will receive verbal and written post-surgical care instructions. Please follow these instructions. Your escort must be available to discuss and sign these instructions before you will be allowed to go home. If you experience anything unusual after your surgery, please call your surgeon or go to the nearest emergency room.
DO NOT PLAN TO DRIVE yourself home or use public transportation after your procedure. A friend, relative or dedicated caregiver MUST stay with you for 24 hours.
A nurse from MSC will contact you a few days after your surgery to check on your condition.
