What Happens After the Operation?

After the operation is over you will be taken to a special area, called the Recovery room, close to the operating theatre and staffed by nurses specially trained to look after anaesthetised patients who are waking.

Your anaesthetist is still responsible for your general condition whilst you are in the recovery area.   If you have any pain after you wake up, you can be reassured your anaesthetist will arrange for post-op medications to make you more comfortable.
