We start the patient orally within 4 hours of surgery. Patient is discharged within 24 hours of operation. Patient is fit to resume his duties within 3-4 days of operation. Heavy strenuous work like lifting loads, extensive gym is to be avoided for next 3 months.
We advocate regular diet after 24 hours of operation once patient passes stool and wind. Liquid diet and semi solid diet is started within 4 hours of operation.
Single hole surgery uses no superficial sutures and it is scarless.
All sutures used are absorbable which dissolve after 1 week automatically. So no need to remove the sutures.
