Recovery time after teeth extraction

DS (8yo) has to have 2 supernumerary teeth extracted under general anaesthetic. It is scheduled for a Weds morning. Would he be OK to return to school the next day or do you think he will need a couple of days to recover? Just wondering what to expect and whether to shift it to a Friday (which would mean an even longer wait for this to happen so don't want to switch if I don't have to)

Thanks!

Id keep the wed appointment but keep him off school on thurs. They say someone should be with you for 24 hours after a general. Also shouldnt be running around etc after extraction, which he probably would be likely to do at school.
