What are some things to be concerned about after having surgery?


After surgery, there are a few things our doctors want to know about sooner rather than later, including...

- Excessive drainage or bleeding that you see through the dressing

- Fever, nausea, chills

- Calf pain or swelling

- Chest pain, shortness of breath

- Pain that is unrelenting and not controlled with your medication

If you have surgery with one of our doctors, we go over the reasons to call and what to do if you experience any of these issues.
