The University of Chicago Medicine - Comer Children's Hospital

After Your Child's Surgery or Procedure

Your surgeon will provide you with instructions for your child to follow at home. It is important that your child follows them carefully to assure a smooth recovery.

Notify your surgeon's office immediately if your child experiences:

  • Any bleeding or drainage from the operative site
  • Has unusual redness or pain
  • Starts running a temperature over 101°

Be on the lookout for other "danger signals" to which your surgeon may alert you.

Your surgeon or nurse will schedule a return visit to the outpatient clinic for your child, so they can check your child's progress after surgery and confirm that he or she is healing well.
