Released by the surgeon @ 3 weeks post-op?

I saw my surgeon for a post-op visit today, and all went well. She told me that I am healing extremely well and that she is happy with my progress. Pathology report came back clean, and I can go back to work (part-time) week of 8/11. DH and I could not be more pleased.

At the end of the visit I asked when I should come back for another follow up, and she told me that she did not need to see me again unless I experienced a complication or had a concern. She was extremely nice and told me not to hesitate to call her office any time. But, then she explained that her work as a surgeon was done and thankfully, she would not need to see me as an oncology patient. Basically, I was released back to my regular gynecologist who referred me to her in the first place.

Is this normal, or was I released too soon?

I'm glad everything went well.
I don't go see my Dr. till next week so I don't know what's normal.
Just wanted to express my happiness for you.

Thanks uchinanchu- I don't want to seem ungrateful for the good news, but I sort of feel adrift now. I was not expecting to be released so soon.

My sister who had a TAH was released at 2-1/2 weeks. I was released at 2 weeks with a laproscopic.

Two weeks for me after LSH/BSO. So, I guess it's not "abnormal". Of course, I was told to keep in touch -- call with questions, etc. I have emailed my doc several times and he has always responded

I was released at 3 weeks which I thought was too early because I was still having some problems. My surgeon did not seem to want to deal with any questions after the surgery. I did set up a check up at 6 weeks with my regular GYN just to make sure things were progressing as they should be.

I was released from the surgeon at my 4 week post op visit. I will be going to see a gyn that is closer to me to follow up with my depo shots for the next 4 months.

Zoeyjoey, did she tell you what kind of followup exams you'd need? I go to my gyn/onc on Friday for my 4 week followup exam. I have so many questions for her: when do I have followup exams, what kind, who does them, how often, etc.

Thanks for all the input - you guys are the best.

Peaceful Storm,
She told me to follow up with my regular gynecologist (who referred me to her) for my annual exams. Once I got home it seemed like an awful lot of time would pass between now and my next annual visit. But, since the surgeon was really clear about telling me to call with any questions or issues, perhaps if I don't have a problem I am good to go until then. I think I am going to call my regular gynecologist's office to see if I should schedule some sort of exam with him soon.

That seems early. My GYN was my surgeon. She saw me at two weeks just to answer quesions, tell me about the surgery and look at my incision. They were disappearing stitches.

I go in to see her for my six week appt tomorrow. I have lots more questions for her.
