Getting Back to Activities of Daily Living

  • Do your balance exercises one to two times daily; this will shorten your recovery time.
  • Take several short walks each day, gradually increasing your distance and time walked. You should avoid uneven ground if your balance is off, until you feel more confident.  
  • If you are having problems with balance, we may refer you for vestibular rehabilitation.
  • You should not drive until you feel you are no longer dizzy or off balance. No driving for a minimum of 3 weeks post-surgery.
