Once you are ready for discharge from the hospital, you will be provided specific information about recovery and instructions before leaving the hospital. Listed below are some GENERAL guidelines that explain how to care for yourself, what to expect, when to contact the office, recommended activity levels, lifestyle changes, and follow-up care. Call anytime with questions or concerns.
In general, we schedule follow-up appointments 2 weeks from discharge from the hospital. Call your primary care provider to schedule a 4-week post-surgery appointment and call your primary cardiologist to schedule 6 week post-surgery appointment.
