Make plans to have help at home while you recover.
Follow a healthy lifestyle. If you have high blood pressure, keep it under control. Do not smoke. If you drink alcohol, talk with your doctor about when it is okay to start again. Ask your doctor when it is okay to start sexual activity.
Take your seizure medicine if any was prescribed for you. Your doctor may refer you to a speech, physical, or occupational therapist to help you recover from any brain damage.
If the doctor put a catheter in through your groin (endovascular surgery), it is okay to walk short distances on a flat surface. Limit going up and down stairs to around 2 times a day for 2 - 3 days. Do not do yard work, drive, or play sports for at least 2 days -- or when your doctor says it is okay to do so.
Your doctor or nurse will tell you when your dressing should be changed. Do not take a bath or swim for 1 week. If you have bleeding, lie down and put pressure on the incision site for 30 minutes.
