Kids' Surgery

When will I go home?
Some kids are able to go home after their surgery. You will probably spend about an hour in the recovery room, waking up from your sleep. The recovery nurse will make sure that you are awake and feeling okay. She will also want to make sure that you can have a Popsicle or some juice and that your tummy feels OK. The nurse will go over any instructions with your parents on how to take care of you when you get home.
