What should I expect post-operatively?

Expect to be swollen, tender and possibly bruised.  This is very normal so do not be alarmed at the presence of any of the above.  If you are in pain, take your prescribed medications and do not forget to take your antibiotics and apply your eye salves if instructed.  You will be groggy from the anesthetic so this is a good thing, do not fight it.  This helps you rest and adjust to your healing period without pain or memory of pain.
