When should I have a follow-up visit after the nephroureterectomy procedure?

Your doctor will tell you how soon after the surgery you should have a follow-up appointment.

This visit is very important because on this occasion the doctor will evaluate the result of the nephroureterectomy and understand how well your recovery is going.

During your first follow-up appointment, you will also receive specific aftercare recommendations based on your stage of recovery.

Your doctor will tell you when it’s best to have the follow-up appointment. Typically, this visit is scheduled 7-10 days after the surgery.
