How many post op appointments?

Hi,

I had an appointment 12 days after my surgery to remove my staples. The doctor removed the staples and put several strips of tape across the incision. He told me to leave the tape on for two weeks. He did not tell me to come back for another check. Is this normal? It seems so strange to not have other checkups after such a major surgery. I just worry if I'm healing properly? Does everything look fine? What has been your experience?

A little puss after removal of staples?

Hi,

After my staples were removed, the next day I noticed a little sticky yellow drainage coming from one area of my incision. It was my first soaking bath. I wondered if it was something dry that just ran after being wet or something new. The next day I didn't notice any drainage. I didn't contact the doctor because he already thinks I worry too much. Have any of your experienced this?

I haven't experienced that. I had mine on the 16th and had a check up yesterday. I go back again early August for another check up. Ask your doctor if you think you need another check up.

I had a 2 week post op appt and a 6 week post op appt. My doctor said my next appt would be in a year, unless there were any problems.

Re: How many post op appointments?

Maybe my doctor is just really cautious, but it's been 7 weeks since surgery and I have had 5 post op appointments. Granted, 1 appointment was for an allergic reaction I was having to one of the medications, but the other 4 were all standard post op visits. Today was my last one until my next annual. Yippee ... I feel great!!!

I had a 4 week post op visit and a I'll see you at your yearly check up. But my DR did say to call if I have any problems at all. I DO call.

Re: How many post op appointments?

I had my da Vinci surgery last Friday on the 16th and my biggest incision where my uterus was actually removed was really hurting on Monday, so I called the surgeon/dr's office to make my followup appt, and the NP told me she wanted me to come in the next day, which was Tuesday.

She said all my incisions look good, but my belly button incision is not healing quite as well as the others and to keep an eye on it.

I'm supposed to go back Aug 9 to see if I can be cleared to go back to work, so I guess that will be all unless something else comes up, which hopefully won't.

Re: How many post op appointments?

I had my TLH on July 16, and my first post op is July 30th to see if I'm cleared to go back to work for the 31st. I then have another scheduled for August 13 for more blood work, an ultrasound, and anything else that may arise. It's at this appointment I'm being started on another hormone treatment supposed to be similar to the Lupron, but more effective.
