Unless otherwise instructed:
You may shower the day after your operation – leave skin glue alone. No swimming or submerging in water for 10 days. Drive a car when pain-free and off of pain medicine. Regular diet. Non-strenuous activity until the first post-operative appt. Avoid hot, sweaty, dusty, dirty conditions, or lifting greater than 20 lbs.
Be aware that having an operation and especially taking narcotic/opioid pain medicine can cause constipation. Take a laxative or stool softener daily, or drink apple or prune juice at meal times.
Apply ice to the operative site as directed.
Return to work as instructed by your surgeon.
Call any of the office numbers during business hours. Your call will be handled by one of our medical assistants, followed by notifying the doctor for any further instructions as needed. Please note that it may take up to 24 hours to return your call unless you state that you need immediate attention. After hours, the call will be routed to the medical exchange and the doctor on call. Use of the after hours line is usually reserved for the rare circumstance that involves a pressing, or emergency issue.
You will be evaluated by your surgeon to confirm or determine what your diagnosis is, then discuss your treatment options. It will be determined if a procedure is needed, or if an in-office procedure is appropriate. All major operations and some other more involved procedures are best performed in an operating room or at a hospital due to need for anesthesia, perssonel, or technical resources.
