Re: Why different post op check ups?

I'm in Alabama and had a TAH. I saw a nurse at one week post-op to get the staples out. She asked if I had any issues. If I had I could have talked to the doctor. She said he usually likes to see patients two weeks after the staple remover (3 weeks post-op) but since he's on vacation this week I'll see him at 4 weeks. After that I'll see him again at 6 weeks, and depend on how my cuff and hormones are doing, possibly 8 weeks. After that I'll see him at 3 months and then 6 months. That's to check my hormone levels and my state of mind since I'm not taking any HRT for a while.

Re: Why different post op check ups?

6 weeks is the norm over here - which is a check-up at the hospital where the surgery was done, with the surgeon who did it. Internal exam, etc.

But I could contact my own GP of course at any time if I had concerns and if he/she thought it necessary I'd have been referred back to the hospital.
