    First V45.89 is secondary only allowed. As far as the V67.00 vs V58.49.....
    Follow up is a surveilance encounter to assure that all is well,
    Aftercare implies something is still being done for the patient and should be followed with the appropriate V code to explain what is being done such as V58.32 for suture removal
