  • Drink plenty of fluids after surgery to avoid dehydration, which is dangerous and can worsen pain.
  • Consult with your doctor about all medications you are taking or plan to take.
  • Use pain medication as instructed.
  • Generally, no aspirin or aspirin-like medications (consult with your physician).
  • If you have difficulty during the post-operative period, please contact our office (402-397-0670, after hours: 402-354-2754).  Always contact us for bleeding, temperature over 102 degrees Fahrenheit, suspected dehydration, or changes in mental status (abnormal behavior).
