Dr. Richard Parent answered

Specializes in Bariatrics

Abnormal: Any bleeding or drainage from a laparoscopic incision is concerning. Please contact the surgeon that performed the laparoscopic procedure to schedule a follow up appointment or return to the Urgent Care or ED where the procedure was performed for evaluation.
