- Arrange for a responsible adult to drive you home and remain with you for the first 24 hours following surgery.
- If you experience any change in your physical condition prior to your scheduled surgery (such as a cold, fever, etc.), please notify your surgeon immediately. It is possible that your surgical procedure may need to be postponed.
