How often will I need to see the doctor?
This all depends on what is wrong. For some things, like a broken arm, you probably won't need to see the doctor more than once or twice, but you might need physiotherapy for a while longer. For others, like leukaemia or some heart conditions, you will need to see the doctors, nurses and teams of people who are trying to make you better for a long time - sometimes for years. What is important is that we all want to make you better, so you are well enough NOT to see anyone at the hospital again! But we need to be very sure you are as well as you can be. Your doctor or nurse will tell you if they need to see you again.
