    after or afterwards

    Is it wrong to say just:
    She woke up two hours after.
    Or I have to use:
    She woke up two hours afterwards.
    Someone explained me that 'after' can't go alone, it needs an object, but I was wondering if the first sentence is correct with an appropiate context.

    Re: after or afterwards

    You could say 'she woke up after two hours', or 'two hours later'.
