Your child will go to the Postanesthesia Care Unit (PACU) right after surgery. He / she will then be transferred to the Neuroscience Unit for close observation.
The pain team will help provide pain medication for your child after surgery. Expect your child to stay on his / her same spasticity medication during the hospital stay. Your surgeon, rehabilitation doctor, advance practice nurses and other professionals will see your child while in the hospital.
An abdominal binder, or wrap, may be used after surgery. A dry dressing may be kept over the incisions until your child’s first outpatient visit.
