After your Surgery
When You Get Home
We strongly advise you have a responsible adult with you for the first 24 hours following discharge from hospital. Most patients usually rest during this time and may require additional care at home.
You may expect to feel a little tender after the operation, please feel free to phone us for advice.
However, should you feel-
- increased pain or excessive swelling around the wound
- nausea or vomiting
- chest pain or breathing trouble
- fever or chills
please call your surgeon or doctor immediately.
In the event of an emergency call an ambulance (111).
