“Posologia: 4 x dia inicia apos cirurgia”
The difference between “depois” and “após”.
They both mean after but one has more urgency than the other apparently.
The problem for us was that we were supposed to take a medication right after the surgery (same day) and not the next day. We asked Portuguese family members the difference and they didn’t know. It turns out that we made a big mistake by not taking the medication on the same day. Luckily the doctor said (surprisingly to him) there was no damage done.
Is there a medical glossary of some kind?
