Instructions for After a Treatment Appointment Involving Minor Surgery (link under construction)
After completely a lengthy appointment with some form of sedation, you may need help with comfort after the anesthesia wears off. Soreness can linger two to five days after treatment. You may use your own pain medications to manage soreness. We often prescribe analgesics as needed.
