No one wants to have a reason to have an operation. However in some cases it might be better to have cause to go through an operation if the end result is likely to mean an improvement in your health.
In most cases this will be the end result. However there is always a potential for things to happen that result in poor after-effects and symptoms you were not expecting. If this sounds familiar to you it might be that you have been through something similar and not had the outcome you were expecting.
There are instances for example where people have had hip replacements only to find the replacements were wearing out after a couple of years.
This necessitated additional surgery that should not have been necessary. Before any operation you should be told of the potential after-effects you may go through, so you know what to expect.
If anything happens that was not likely to happen or you were not informed of, it is a good idea to seek treatment or further advice so you know whether your condition is normal or not. As such you can expect to have more information to go on.
How long should it take to get over an operation?
It’s to be expected that it would take some time to recover from an operation. It depends on what the op was for and what happened of course, but all in all you would expect a reasonable recovery.
If you end up being in pain for some considerable time afterwards you should see your GP or specialist to determine whether there is a reason for it. There may be after-effects resulting from an operation that you should not have to go through.
Are you considering claiming compensation for operation after-effects?
If you undergo an operation in the hope it will make a certain condition better, the last thing you would expect is for things to get worse.
However if you have found yourself in this situation and you believe there is evidence existing of negligence on behalf of those who performed the operation, you should contact AAH for no-obligation advice.
