When should I go to the Emergency Room?
Following surgery, there may be circumstances that require you to go to the emergency room. Certainly any chest pain, shortness of breath, or difficulty at home, please don't hesitate to contact an ambulance and go to the emergency room. However, if you have a question about drainage from your wound or possible infection, please refer to this website or even contact our office to answer those questions. As you would imagine, the emergency room often has a long wait, and often we can take away the need for you to go to the emergency room by answering these questions for you.
