5.1 Medical consultation

Questions addressed to the doctor after the operation:
  • Has the operation progressed as expected?
  • Is there anything in particular that I must observe in the immediate future?
  • Is a further operation or treatment procedure necessary?
  • What problems or complications could possibly occur after discharge?
  • How great is the probability of a hernia recurring at the surgical site or at another site?
  • Is follow-up needed, and if yes, what does this entail?
