After Your Stay

Post Operation

As a day case patient, where you go immediately after your procedure will depend on the type of anaesthetic you have received. For example if you have a general anaesthetic or sedation, you will need closer monitoring for a while. You may also feel drowsy, so may need to lie down for a short time until you have recovered from the effects of your anaesthetic.

If you have had a local anaesthetic only, you won’t need as much monitoring, so will be shown to a ‘Discharge area’ where you will be able to sit for a while until you are seen by a nurse and advised you can go home. Again, dependent on your treatment, your doctor or a physiotherapist may wish to see you before you leave the hospital. We will let you know if this is the case.
