Surgical recovery - a question


Recommended Posts

When a patient goes from surgery to the recovery room... Is there an average time for the recovery room stay?


I've had 5 surgeries, and never spent more than 1 - 2 hours in the recovery room, but I was young and relatively healthy.


Feeling very concerned about an older patient (75) who went into the recovery room at 10 this morning after a successful surgery. But it's 5:40 now and he's still in recovery and has not woken up! No one can see him. :(


Is this unusual?

Thanks, itsheresomewhere, that's what I was thinking. DH and MIL sat in the room-to-be waiting for him, so I felt there must be a complication. They finally got some info though, and are with him in recovery now, waiting to see if it's going to be ICU.
