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?
