When you wake up from surgery, you will have stockings around the bottom of your legs. These help prevent a blood clot from forming. They can be hot, noisy, and inconvenient. However, they are very important to help reduce your risk of developing a blood clot. Please keep them on. Walking is the best form of exercise after surgery and is an important factor in reducing your risk of a blood clot. If you develop any changes in leg tenderness and/or swelling of the calf, please contact your surgeon’s office right away.
Your incision may be closed with absorbable sutures, staples, Steri-strips, or skin glue. Inspect the incision and change the dressing every day. Once there is no drainage, the wound can be left open to air without a dressing.

Returning to driving
You will usually be permitted to drive 2 weeks after surgery, and when you are no longer taking pain medications.
Returning to work
You should contact your surgical team to discuss when you will be able to return to work. The surgical office will complete the Family Medical Leave Act/Short-Term Disability paperwork. Please note there is a 5-7-day turnaround time. Please provide specific directions as to where the paperwork should be sent. The surgical offices are responsible for short-term disability up to 12 weeks after surgery. Any additional time off will need to be determined by your primary care physician or referring provider.
If you had cervical or lumbar fusion surgery, you should not take non-steroidal medications such as ibuprofen, Aleve, Naprosyn, Motrin, Advil, etc., until your surgeon tells you. In most cases, these medications can be resumed 12 weeks after surgery. If you did not have a cervical or lumbar fusion, you may resume the above medications approximately 10 days after surgery. Your need for pain medications will decrease over time.
