After waking up from anaesthesia, you will be nursed in the High Dependency unit.
You will be bedbound initially after the long surgery. But over the subsequent days, the various lines and tubes will be progressively removed one by one, and you will soon be getting up and about with the help of the physiotherapists and nurses. Thereafter you will be transferred to the General Ward, where you will continue to recover and recuperate. The estimated length of stay in hospital is usually up to 1.5 to 2 weeks if no significant complications occur after surgery.
You can call the Specialist Outpatient Clinic and ask to see your doctor earlier. For more urgent situations, please go to the hospital Accident and Emergency for help.
