Most patients get out of the bed the same day after surgery. Activities can increase slowly and patients generally return home the day after the procedure, depending on the extent of the surgery. Pain medications are prescribed by the doctor.
At home, enough rest is recommended. The doctor will instruct you to increase activities gradually while taking pain medication
