Nowadays, having a surgery has far less risks than it had decades ago. With new technologies available for physicians around the country, we can focus on the procedure and not so much on the tools anymore.
Anyhow, there are precautions to consider, especially after the surgery.
Even if the procedure lasts only a couple of hours, keep in mind that the human body needs time to fully recover.
The first thing to watch out after a vascular surgery is if you feel any loss of sensation or movement in any part of your body.
Second, keep special care if you notice any kind of swelling. Especially in your legs.
If any of this events happen, please get in touch with your vascular surgeon. Do not let too much time to pass. Report these troubles right away.
