Length of stay is one night.
Return to driving is generally recommended at 6 weeks post-surgery once you are off the crutches and feel can safely make an emergency stop.
Flying is not recommended for 6 weeks after surgery (particularly long haul flights of >4 hours) to minimise the risk of a deep vein thrombosis.
Wound is closed with steristrips (paper stitches). This will be clarified by nursing staff on discharge. They will be removed at the 2 week appointment.
Returning to work is generally 6 weeks. This will be discussed with Mr. Jackson at your consultation.
Showering is not permitted until 24 hours after surgery. Cling film can be used to keep the dressing dry.
