My follow-up appointments
7-10 days after the surgery:
- Your stiches will be removed in clinic
1 month after surgery:
- You will meet with your surgeon to make sure your recovery is going well. In many cases, you won?t need to see your surgeon again. Your endocrinologist or family doctor will be able to follow you regularly and will refer you back to your surgeon if there is any concern.
- Your surgeon may want to follow you for a longer period depending on the extent of your disease.
- Your endocrinologist or family doctor will manage your thyroid medications (thyroid hormone, +/- calcium, +/- vitamin D dosage)
