Your consultant will arrange an outpatient clinic appointment for you approximately 6-8 weeks after your operation. You may have the following repeat investigations:

  • A Chest X-Ray
  • A Repeat Echocardiogram
  • An ECG

This will be to assess your progress, ensure that all your wounds are healing well and that you are taking the correct medication.

Usually, if there are no concerns, you will be either referred back to your Cardiologist or General Practitioner for follow up
