Sure!: You just had major surgery and had general anesthesia! Take it easy, drink fluids (no or little) caffeine and stay hydrated. if dizziness or weakness worsens, do call doc. Read the signs of what you should watch for in your discharge instructions. Your doc may have a website where more information about your surgery is given. You'll feel better soon! (God willing and the creek don't rise!)
