Your Discharge Planning Checklist

Always follow your individual physicians discharge instructions after surgery. The care, diet, activity and restrictions will be different depending on the type of surgery you had. It is important not to over do the first week you are home from the hospital.
Be patient and you will see steady improvement. Never hesitate to call your physician if you have concerns.
