Your recovery nurse will discuss warning signs with you prior to discharge. If you exhibit any of these symptoms or severe pain not controlled by your prescribed pain control regimen, you should:
- Contact your surgeon immediately
- Head straight to the nearest emergency room, or
- Call 911
Any urgent concerns after hours or on the weekend, we do have an orthopedic surgeon on call thru Boone Hospital Center, and you can reach them at 573-815-8000. Any concerns between the hours of 8-5 Monday-Friday, can be addressed directly with your surgeon’s office or our Nurse Navigator.
