Following surgery and stay in the recovery room, this person can perform such tasks as driving you to and from the clinic as well as helping you bathe and do other daily activities that you'll probably find difficult in your compromised state.However, if you don't have someone to help you, we can always arrange to have a professional caregiver or registered nurse assist you during your stay.
