laparoscopic nephrectomy

Q | what is the discharge & follow up procedure?

A | After your operation you will be discharged from the ward and asked to attend clinic two weeks later. At this time, the histopathology (microscopic examination) will be discussed with you. Your wounds will be inspected to make sure that they are well healed and future follow-up will be arranged. In the case of kidney cancer follow-up, you will usually be asked to have a chest X-ray, CT scan of the abdomen and blood tests at regular intervals to make sure that there is no evidence of recurrence.

If you have any questions regarding the operation or follow-up, these will be addressed at the first consultation with Mr Thilagarajah or one of his team.
