​​​​​​​​​​​​Your follow-up appointments

Before you leave the hospital, we will give you a follow-up appointment. If you don’t have an appointment for a follow-up before leaving the hospital, call your surgeon’s office the first week you are home.

Your surgeon will send a letter to your family doctor about your surgery. Your family doctor will provide on-going medical care once you leave the hospital. See your family doctor for any problems or questions about your medicines, prescriptions, managing your pain, sleeping, appetite or constipation.​

Your first appointment

About 2 to 4 weeks after the operation.​​


What to Expect
This appointment will let your doctor see how you are feeling. It is important for measuring your progress. On the day of your follow-up appointment, go to the x-ray department first to have a chest x ray. If you were instructed to have blood work, please go to the blood lab at least one hour before your scheduled appointment.​​

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​What to Bring
Your health card and a list of any medications you are taking.​​


To make or change appointments, call your surgeon's office.
