When can I expect to go home?

Most patients can go home on the same day. Recovery is very rapid after this type of anaesthetic and patients are usually ready to go home within two hours of their return to the ward. They must have drunk, eaten, passed urine and be steady on their feet. Once they have passed these 'tests' they can go accompanied by a responsible adult.
