Your doctor should tell how you should feel in the days after the surgery or procedure. For instance, should you expect to experience fever, nausea or loose or broken stitches? Your doctor should also describe what you will need to do to help yourself heal. You should ask about any medicines, supplies or equipment you will need for your recovery. If the surgeon gives you a pamphlet or other written material with this information, read it and ask about anything that isn’t clear.
