Who is your relative - cousin, aunt, uncle, etc.???
How old is your relative?
What type of surgery did he/she have?
Does your relative have his/her own residence?
Do you know exactly why your relative is not wishing to leave - what has he/she offered in way of an explanation?
Please let me know so that I can assist you.
Thank you - I look forward to your reply.
Peace, Love & Happiness,

I note your original post which helps so that I may assist you.
While the doctor has indicated that your aunt is ready to go back to work, it is important to understand that when a person of such age has undergone such an ordeal, for which any hospitalization and surgery can weigh one down, emotionally, it will take extra care and patience on the part of the caregiver to nurse one back to health, especially on an emotional level. I appreciate that you would like for her to go home - however, rushing her may cause harm.
The most important thing to do is to get her up and out of the house, so she can start to get back into her regular routine of life - it appears that she may be hesitant of setting out on her own again (due to fear of injuring herself, perhaps believing that she is frail at this stage) - and that can happen more so to a person of her age.
Perhaps your aunt has other relatives that can come forward and spend time with her - to place her out in a social environment - to bring positivity into her life. If so, I would contact them. If not, I would try to be a bit more patient - perhaps taking her over to her house every day, just to check on things (which helps to get her back into her own surroundings)...as well, having her visit her place of employment - to stop by and say hello to her fellow co-workers - the more you try to get her back into her own surroundings/environment, the sooner she will heal (emotionally and physically)...and then before you know it, she will leave.
I do hope this has helped.
If you have any more questions, please do not hesitate to let me know.
My best to you and your aunt.
