What can I expect after my child's surgery?

Here is what you can expect after your child's surgery:

  • In most cases, your child can go home 1-2 hours after surgery.
  • Your child might have pain or swelling after surgery. The surgeon will tell you which pain medications are safe to take.
  • Your child should wait 1-2 weeks before playing sports.
  • Your child can go back to normal activities when he feels ready.
