What happens after discharge from hospital?
You will go home once you are safely able to cope with walking in this manner. Most patients go home the same day as their surgery. You will be seen at the Dressing Clinic in the Orthopaedic department between 10 days to 2 weeks after your operation. At this appointment, the Nurses will check the incision and remove the dressing and stitches if required.
