What happens after surgery?

October 30, 2019

Your jaw is likely to be sore, so we will give you painkillers regularly to ease the pain. The discomfort is usually worse for the first few days and may take a couple of weeks to go away completely.

We will give you antibiotics through a vein in your arm (intravenously) to reduce the risk of infection of the fractures.

Before you go home you will have an x-ray to check the position of your fractures. We will also give you painkillers and might give you a course of antibiotics to take home.
