Postoperative care Medicines The main portion of medicines is taken by the patient during the surgery via the intravenously infused serum - painkillers, antibiotics and anti-swelling drugs. However, medicines taken during surgery are not 100% sufficient to protect the patient further on, therefore antibiotics, painkillers, antiseptic and anti-swelling drugs must be prescribed by the doctor. Antibiotics intake usually lasts for 5-7 days, depending on the patient, and painkillers – around 1-3 days. Getting back home The first thing you should do when you get back home is to call your general practitioner and inform him/her of the surgery details. Being examined by your general practitioner is of exceptional importance, not only to eliminate the risk of complications, but also for the psychic condition of the patient. For many patients, getting back home causes groundless anxiety because the surgeon is far away and personal examination is impossible. Most patients are wondering whether a certain body response is normal. Contact your surgeon If during the examination your GP finds any postoperative complications, you could send us information on them – your GP's diagnosis, pictures, analysis results, etc., so as to enable the surgeon who has performed the operation to offer any solution. In the event a second intervention is required, the correction in the clinic shall be either free of charge or at substantially reduced cost depending on the cause for complication. Within the 3 months after operation, your surgeon will be ready to answer your questions.
