Dr. Shyam Dahiya shares when patients will need to contact their doctor after having bariatric surgery.
The routine these days, some of it is even actually a requirement by the, what I would call Medicare regulations. We have to follow them for a year at least. What I like to do is if I can follow for up to whatever their lifespan. First visit after the operation is seven days down the line for your stitches. Then I see them once a month for a year. After that, every three months, four months as long as they can come.
