Vous venez à l'hôpital le jour de l'opération et vous retournez chez vous après un bref séjour dans la salle de réveil à l'unité des soins post-anesthésie. Avant votre opération, vous pourriez devoir passer certains tests. Cela dépendra de votre état de santé général et du type d'opération que vous subirez. Au besoin, quelqu'un vous appellera pour que vous vous présentiez à la clinique de préadmission.Women's Health Program, IWK. / Having "day surgery" (with Adult Surgical Services, Women's Health Program, IWK Women's Site) means you will not stay at the hospital overnight. You will come to the hospital the day of surgery, and then return home after a short stay in the Recovery Room (Post Anesthesia Care Unit- PACU).
