Longer Hospital Stay

There may be circumstances when your doctor will recommend a longer hospital stay than was originally anticipated. This could be due to a medical complication or simply because you are not healing as quickly as expected. In other instances your physician may ask you to spend a few extra days in your hotel recuperating. In either case it is important to be prepared to pay additional charges, especially if you do not have insurance coverage.

Medical Complications

Every surgical procedure has inherent risks. Often those risks are minimal, but you should be aware of them. Every patient has his or her own set of risks and these should be discussed with the surgeon and your personal physician in details before the surgery. The risks associated with anesthesia are mainly related to allergic reactions to medications used for this purpose.

Even after a successful surgery, you might experience complications such as blood clots or an infection. You need to discuss with your surgeon the specific risks for your case. Your surgical team is trained in how to deal with and minimize the chance of complications occurring right after the surgery. If complications do occur, they could necessitate the patient a second surgery in order to correct the problem. Your surgeon will inform you regarding the treatment options available if you suffer a complication.

Contact your Surgeon if:

  • You develop a fever.
  • Your wound feels hot or your wound is oozing.
  • The problems for which you are having the surgery get worse.
  • You have severe pain at the incision site.
  • You are having pain or a burning sensation when passing urine.
