We are in the process of compiling detailed aftercare and postoperative instructions for all the commonly performed procedures within our practice. Please note that you may have had more than one operation and you may require a more extended recovery period if this is the case. Please carefully review the relevant sections for the procedures you have had.
Please get in touch if you have any of the symptoms listed below:
If you have increased swelling or bruising which is not settling.
If you notice swelling of one/ both of your legs or feel short of breath – this may indicate a clot in one of your veins/ lungs – Deep vein thrombosis/ Pulmonary embolism.
If you have increased redness along any incisions you have (this may be a sign of infection).
If you have severe or increased pain not relieved by medication.
If you have any side effects to medications; such as, rash, nausea, headache, vomiting.
If you have a temperature over 38 degrees Celsius.
If you have any yellowish or greenish discharge from the incisions.
