A member asked:

I don't think my surgeon removed any co2 from my abdomen after surgery. is there a way to tell if he left it all in or not?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

I would not worry: Co2 is used because it is rapidly absorbed by the body and removed. When the instruments are removed at the end of the case - the majority co2 ruses out. The small amount that is left int will be reabsorbed within a few hours.
