When do I have my first postoperative follow-up after a thoracic surgery?

Your doctor will tell you when this meeting should take place following thoracic surgery.

After this type of intervention, it is important to follow-up with your doctor because he or she has to evaluate your recovery.

Based on your symptoms and how well you are healing, your doctor will be able to provide you with the most appropriate guidelines for each stage of your recovery.

You will see your doctor again for the first time after the surgery in 2-4 weeks.
