Pain Relief

It is important that you take regular simple analgesia once you get home. Panadol and anti-inflammatory with food such as nurofen will help control pain

Wound care

Leave your wound covered for 5 days after your operation. Remove the dressing after this time, you may wash your wound in the shower, just let the water run over the wound. Don not use soap or scrub the wound. If you have stitches to be removed these will be removed approximately 7-10 days after your operation
