What to expect 48 hours after surgery

Activity

  • We encourage walking and sitting in a chair. PT/OT will continue.

Diet

  • When your child gets his/her Miralax drink from the nurse, your child should drink the full cup within 20-30 minutes for the medicine to work the best. He/she should continue to eat small snacks/meals throughout the day. His/her appetite will not be the same while he/she are on the pain medicine.

Pain

  • Transition to oral pain medicine may begin today. Time pain medicine around your child's therapy schedule.

Treatment

  • The drain tube may come out today and the bandage may be changed (if not today then it will happen tomorrow.)
