FAQs FOR GENERAL SURGERY
1. After my first consultation, what’s next?
If you are a right candidate for a general surgery your surgeon will choose to proceed with large surgery.
After your first consultation, the next procedures may be one of the following:
• Post your initial consultation related visit, the surgeon may decide to schedule your case while you are available.
• You may be asked to visit pathology lab for diagnostic tests prior to proceeding with a surgery.
• You may be asked to schedule another consultation prior to proceeding with any type of surgery required for your case.
2. What does pre-admission testing mean (PAT)?
Depending on various other factors, you may be asked to undergo a pre-admission testing with the hospital before your surgical procedure. This mainly depends on the age of the patient, the type or particular procedure performed, certain risk factors, or requirements of the hospital or clinic or the anesthesiologist. Your surgeon will let you know if pre-admission testing is required in your case. Typically, pre-admission testing requires the patient to report to the hospital several days before a scheduled surgery procedure for simple lab work and diagnostics. You will also have to pre-register for your surgery at that point.
3. When and how to make the payments for general surgery?
Surgery Procedures that are scheduled in advance require a patient to make a pre-payment. Even if a patient has a medical insurance there are often deductible, co-payments or other cost-sharing provisions associated with your surgical procedure. The hospital will collect your pre-surgery payment portion for the surgeon’s services in advance of your procedure. For non-emergent cases, if a required pre-payment is not provided it may be rescheduled for your procedure and postponed to a more convenient time.
4. When can I resume my work post a laparoscopic surgery?
There is no set time that is perfect or suitable for everyone. The type of work you do such as labour or desk job, your own pain/discomforts if any, and other medical conditions are considered before discharging you from the hospital. You and your surgeon will decide that at your first post-operative visit.
5. Why is the area around the wound red, is it an infection?
The wounds that are closed with an absorbable suture just beneath the skin are surrounded by a little redness which is not uncommon and does not necessarily indicate an infection. However, a wound that is becoming increasingly painful has an area of redness that is also swollen and growing, or is associated with fever should be brought to the notice of your surgeon or their assistant.
6. Are there any restrictions on your surgery?
Generally, it is advised to not lift anything for 1-2 weeks post the laparoscopic abdominal or thoracic surgery. However, lifting will not put more strain on your wounds than coughing or sneezing. The patient or in fact anyone does not have the ability to prevent a sneeze or a cough. Thus, lifting is seldom a source of wound disruption. Most surgeons recommend common sense; do not try to lift anything if it hurts, and if you feel pain, stop. Most surgeons will talk to you about your job and daily activities and any precautions you should take post surgery.
