Post op appointments

I keep reading about everyone's experiences on their one week or two week post op appointments. My doctor said I do not need to come in for four weeks after surgery. I am having a TAH/BSO. It seems a little odd to me that after I go home from the castle, that I won't have any check ups for four weeks. Has anyone else's doctor done this?

My post-op check was at five weeks after surgery, although my doctor did call me on the phone to ask how I was doing. I was just as happy not to leave my house to go for another appt!!

Hi, Loried! It seems that most doctors want to see their post op patients at 2-3 weeks, unless they need to remove staples before then. But each dr is different, and maybe your doctor's patients have all done wonderfully well, not needing a check so soon. In any case, don't hesitate to call your dr if you have any problems or questionable symptoms during recovery. I'm sure he would tell you to come in for an exam if necessary, and give you reassurance when needed. s and best wishes!

My doc had me come in at 4 weeks, too. He did however give me list at the hospital when he was discharging me of all the things that I should see him for before that if they happened and a list of things that I should go to the ER and he would meet me there. (of course NONE of them happened- my recovery has gone quite well all in all)

Thanks for the info! It makes me feel better knowing other people's doctors did not have them come in for 4-5 weeks. How come some of the people posting say their doctor had them come in after one week? It seems cruel to make someone get up and go in and sit in the doctor's office at that point.
