Coming back home after a surgical procedure
You must be accompanied to leave the CMC, as well as during the first 24 hours after your departure. Medicines used during anesthesia and pain relievers can affect your senses and reflexes and cause drowsiness. You are strongly advised not to drive your vehicle for 72 hours after the surgery.
For the same reasons that apply to driving, you should defer any major decisions to another day. The anesthesia can also cause you to be more sensitive and irritable for a few days.
