Hi there -

Quick question. How long did you keep visiting your surgeon post op? I love my surgeon so I’m happy to stay with her as long as she’ll have me lol.

Due to coronavirus my upcoming 6 month post op appt was rescheduled. I was going to ask then, because when my mom asked me this question I realized I didn’t really have an answer.

Just curious what everyone else’s experience has been.

My surgeon runs a 5 year post op program. Appointments at 6 weeks, 12 weeks, 3 months, 6 months, 12 months, 18 months then yearly until 5 years.

I also had my surgery in September and my 6 month was also canceled. The way I understood was just a year, but I could be wrong I will have to ask if I ever get back in!

I'm still seeing mine. I have my five-year one scheduled for July.

My wife and I still see (well, talk to him - he's 3-400 miles away) every year (almost nine years for me, fifteen for her.) They include the first 18 months in the surgical fee. They are used to doing remote follow ups as they have patients all over the country, so have been doing that for years - other docs are rapidly learning how to do that now!

Unless there is something seriously wrong where they need some hands on examination, there is rarely anything that can't be done over the phone/fax/email.
