Do I need a follow-up examination after the bladder augmentation surgery?

Follow-up is necessary after any major intervention because this is when the doctor can evaluate how effective the procedure was.

After a bladder augmentation surgery, it is important to follow up with your doctor. The first visit will be scheduled approximately three weeks after the intervention.

During this visit, your doctor will be able to assess the outcome of your intervention and understand what future improvement you should expect.

The follow-up appointment is also useful in offering the doctor an opportunity to provide you with new aftercare guidelines based on your recovery.
