Dr. Macer may prescribe a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication to take the night before the procedure and for a few days after. The procedure takes place under general anesthesia and patients should not eat or drink after midnight on the night before surgery. In the days leading up to the procedure, Dr. Macer will discuss your medical history and current prescriptions with you to avoid allergic reactions or medical complications.
The Acessa surgery is an outpatient procedure. After recovering from general anesthesia, you will return home to rest. The procedure is minimally invasive and should allow you to recover from the surgery and return to work in about three to five days. Dr. Macer can prescribe medication to treat mild abdominal pain that may be felt following the procedure. You should keep the incisions clean and change bandages regularly. Do not hesitate to contact our office or go to the hospital if you experience severe pain, bleeding or other unusual side effects.
