"You will receive specific instructions for postoperative care after surgery. You may be given drugs, such as pain medication or antibiotics, and there will likely be specific instructions regarding diet, physical activity, and other lifestyle issues. These may apply temporarily or permanently. Because of the possibility for complications from surgery or recurrence of disease (for Crohn’s disease patients), it will be necessary to continue to follow up with your gastroenterologist and your surgeon after recovering from surgery."
