After Your Surgery

General post-operative instructions:

Depending on the type and site of your surgery and anaesthetic, you may experience one or more of the following:

Mobility – Dr. Chang will give you clear instructions regarding any protective bracing or restriction in mobility post-op.  The hospital physiotherapist will ensure you have the appropriate mobility aide and are safe to go home.

Driving – Depending on your type and site of operation, you may be able to drive 24hrs after the anaesthetic.  Dr. Chang will give you the clearance to drive when appropriate.

Dressing – Please keep all dressings intact and dry until your post-operative review appointment.
