After your Anaesthetic

You may feel drowsy for a little while. In the recovery area your care continues with the aim of making you as comfortable as possible. It is common to have some dizziness, blurred vision or disorientation which should all pass in a few hours. If you experience any symptoms that concern you, please phone our office or the hospital to discuss them.

Going Home

If you are being treated as a “Day Patient” (going home the day of your surgery or procedure) make sure you have someone to accompany you home. For the remainder of that day, you MUST NOT drive a motor vehicle, make important decisions, use machinery or tools, sign any legal documents or drink alcohol.

If you have any questions or concerns, please discuss them before heading home.
