After your procedure
We will see you immediately after your procedure to make sure all has gone well. If you are staying in hospital we will see you each day until discharged.
When discharged the nursing staff will arrange any pain relief and medication to take home. They will remind you of your follow up appointments and check and advise on any dressings that you might have.
Please have someone to collect you to take you home, and have someone to stay with you overnight for the first night. Our nurse will phone you during that first week to check all is well and answer any queries.
Your follow-up will usually be with either your surgeon or their nurse. Occasionally due to annual leave you might be asked to see a colleague. Normally follow-up comprises 2 to 3 post-operative consultations.
