Quick recovery

Detailed Answer:
Hi again.
Usually patient leaves hospital after 1 days, and usual daily activities can be started right after discharge. Driving is alowed after 3-4 days. There is no specific rehabilitation. Pain may be felt for 1-2 weeks but it will not be significant. We only recommend to sustain from weight (+10kg) lifting for 3-4 weeks.
