Furthermore, patients are kept under care in hospital for a specified period of time to make sure that no such complication rises, or is promptly dealt with if it does occur.

Pain and Other Discomforts

An unavoidable part of the surgery however is the little while it takes patients to become completely healthy and active again. There might be some pain which is manageable by medication. And there might be some other minor discomforts such as nausea, vomiting, bowel routine disturbance, or scarring at the incision site.
