As part of your follow-up care, you will meet regularly with your healthcare provider. This is so your provider can make sure that you are staying safe and healthy.
The first follow-up visit will be about 1 to 2 weeks after you leave the hospital. You should plan on having 2 to 3 follow-up visits with your provider within the first several months after your surgery. You will continue to be followed until you and the members of your transplant team are confident that it's time to release you from their care. However, you are encouraged to call your providers at any time if you have questions or concerns.
When you schedule your appointments, your provider will tell you where these visits will be -- sometimes they're at the hospital and sometimes they're at a private clinic.
