Going Home

Before going home from surgery at Atlantic Health System location, you will be given discharge instructions, which we recommend a family member or friend to listen to with you. Be sure you understand this document and that all of your questions are answered. Depending on the type of surgery you had, you may want to ask about:

  • Medicines (how much and how often to take them)
  • Incision and dressing care
  • Physical activity
  • Bathing and showering
  • Pain control
  • Sign of infection
  • Diet
  • Driving
  • Resuming of sexual relations
  • Returning to work
  • Follow-up visits
