In brief: Need someone!
For any surgery, even a day surgery, you will need someone to drive you home.
The after effects of anesthesia or discomfort make it too dangerous to drive. A friend or family member can also be helpful to remember conversations with the doctor, post-op instructions with the nursing staff, and can help you with filling any prescriptions.

In brief: Care post nerve rx
I would need more info about this which should be obtained from your md.
Type of nerves treated? In all likelihood this may require general and/or IV sedation in which case you should have a designated driver and someone to assist you post op.
