Once surgery is completed, your surgeon will come visit you in the CARES Unit. Your child will be transferred to the Recovery Room and will be provided one-on-one nursing care. As soon as your child is awake, he or she will be transferred to your CARES Unit room to continue recovery in your company.
Your child will remain in the CARES Unit until fully recovered and will able to drink clear liquids without problem. This may take several hours. During this time frame, your child may have mild discomfort, a sore throat and/or cough.
