AFTER THE SURGERY
You will complete your recovery at home. Patients often experience minor after effects following anesthesia, such as drowsiness, muscle aches, sore throat, occasional dizziness, headaches, or nausea. These side effects will diminish one or two days following surgery. Patients often feel sore following your surgery, this is normal. If you had a fusion, patients often have drainage from the incision site that can last for a week or two, this is normal. If you begin to run a fever or have redness around the incision site please call your surgeons office. If you are concerned feel free to contact us or your physician.
A Registered Nurse will call you the following day to check on your progress.
