Where can someone find guidelines on how often x-rays should be taken post operatively. With examples of patients complaining of pain post operative outside of surgical site or patient developes a MRSA infection of a open wound and you need to preform serial radigraghs to make sure the infection does not turn to osteomyelitis.

Thank you,
