Varicose Vein Surgery | Preparation & Expectations | Home Care and Complications

What happens right after the procedure?

After the surgery, the person will be taken to the surgery recovery room to be watched closely for a short time. Vital signs, blood pressure, pulse, and breathing will be checked frequently. Bandages are usually placed over any cuts. Those who have had more complex surgery may need to stay in the hospital overnight. Most other people will be able to go home a few hours after surgery. If sedatives or general anesthesia were used, someone else must drive the person home.
