Your Post-Operative Recovery Experience
The Recovery Room
Upon arrival at the office, your private nurse will assist the recovery nurse with the remainder of your recovery process. Together, they will work as a team to place the initial dressings, check for abnormal swelling, monitor vital signs, provide adequate hydration, and assist in getting the initial garment on. After completing this in the office, your nurse will escort you back to your home or hotel to continue the recovery process.
The First Night
Upon arrival at your home or hotel, your nurse will take all necessary precautions to ensure your comfort and safety. She will ensure your positioning is appropriate based upon the surgery you had, monitor vital signs to maintain appropriate blood pressure, and ensure adequate hydration. Hydration can include additional IV fluids as well as oral hydration. If you have drains, they will be monitored and measured to ensure they are working correctly. You will be encouraged to walk every 2 hours with assistance from your nurse and your surgical sites will be frequently assessed whether you had body surgery or face/neck surgery.
Post-Op Days 1-2
The first 48 hours can be challenging. You will begin to feel all of your surgical sites and incisions as the pain blocks begin to wear off. Your pain/discomfort will be controlled with the oral medications prescribed in addition to your vital signs being monitored. Again, hydration will be monitored and these 2 days you will be assisted with your first shower as this can be difficult. Walking is very important and monitoring bowel function will be a top priority in any post abdominal surgery patient.
Post-Op Days 3-4
Days 2 to 4 of your recovery will be similar to the first day or two, but the recovery process will gradually become easier as the days progress. Your nurse will continue to assist you with walking every two hours, dressing the incision(s), and replacing any garments that are required. Your medications and drains will continue to be managed while maintaining your safety.
