Right After Shoulder Replacement Surgery
Now that your surgery is over, the recovery process begins. Our staff of trained professionals will be with you every step of the way.
Immediately following surgery: You will spend one to two hours in a recovery area, where your pain control will be established, vital signs will be monitored, and an X-ray may be taken of your new joint.
Anesthesia: Your anesthesia may cause blurred vision, dry mouth or chills. We will do everything we can to make you as comfortable as possible.
Pain management: Most of the discomfort occurs in the first 12 hours following surgery. Please let us know as soon as you begin to feel pain, so we can provide medication.
