If you are being admitted to hospital on the day of your surgery, it is important to remember to fast from the requested time.

Generally, your pain will be considerably better after the surgery. However, you may experience some mild to moderate pain. With some treatments, you will probably find that simple pain relievers such as paracetamol or anti-inflammatory medication are all that you require. However, with other treatments, you will be given pain medication to make you more comfortable. The use of a cold pack every 2 hours for the first 24-48 hours will also significantly reduce any pain. With most treatments, the pain will gradually reduce throughout the week following your surgery.
When you are ready and your neurosurgeon has given the okay, the nursing staff will assist you in getting out of bed and walking around. Once you are able to walk unassisted you will be discharged. This can range from 3 to 7 days depending on your treatment and condition.
