How long does recovery take after surgery?
Posted August 28, 2012 in Frequently asked questions
The time varies based on the individual patient, but usually lasts a few hours. The initial recovery from the anesthesia passes quickly, but there is often pain or discomfort at the site where the surgery was performed. This pain heals over time, as the incision heals. Dr. Taylor will discuss any restrictions on activity and how to care for your wound. You can also ask questions about recovery when you meet with the doctor prior to your surgery.
