You can not drive for approximately 6 hours after your procedure.

The effect of the block on pain control and duration of relief will vary from person to person. It may take 7-10 days for pain relief to take effect.

A Yellowstone Surgery Center staff member will attempt to contact you in the week after your procedure to see how you are feeling and to answer any questions you may have.

Most blocks and other pain treatments do not necessitate any restrictions in activity. Unless otherwise advised by your doctor or the Pain Services specialist, you may resume your previous activity level.
