Repair of Hip Fracture , Dr. Bergman
You may also be aware of pain at the site of your surgery. A recovery room nurse will be with you as you awaken. She will give you pain medicine, according to your need. This medicine acts very rapidly and is very effective. The more pain medicine you use, the more sleepy and forgetful you will be. Some people dont remember the recovery room. Its o.k. if you dont remember being in the recovery room.
Most patients stay in the recovery room about an hour, and then are moved to a hospital bed.
