Planning for Your Surgery
The effects of general anesthesia can take as long as 24 hours to subside. You must arrange to have a responsible adult stay with you for at least 24 hours after general anesthesia.
Patients who receive a sedative with a local anesthetic will be advised to have a responsible adult drive them home and stay with them for at least half a day following surgery.
