Leave the bandage in place. If the bandage seems to slip off the head, snug it down back in place. Remove the bandage after 24 hours.

- Some dizziness, nausea and vomiting may be experienced after surgery.
- Make an appointment to see the doctor 7 – 10 days after surgery. Stitches, if necessary, will be removed at this visit.
