Abdominal Binder After Surgery
Resolve with time: Most of the seromas due to surgery especially after incisional hernias repaired with mesh will resolve with or with out abdominal binder binders make some comfortable in others will inter fear with breathing.
Why does/would wearing an abdominal binder raise my blood pressure? Both diastolic and systolic increased by 10 points, pushing me into hypertensive range 135/105.
I am wondering if an abdominal binder helps with diastasis recti. I have about 3 finger widths gap and my son is 9 months old. (also wear w/exercise)?
I told last week by my surgeon that I have developed a seroma and I have a weak spot in my abdomen wall. My surgeon gave me an abdominal binder to wear. Now my abdomen hurts more. Is this common?
Return to surgeon: If I am interpreting correctly, you have had surgery and have complaints around the area of the incision? Seroma is a fluid collection, not uncommonly seen in the incision, which causes pressure. Assuming it is not infected, the seroma can be watched, or if symptomatic, drained. A binder will only increase the pressure and discomfort. You should return to see your surgeon.See 1 more doctor answer
I've been wearing an abdominal support belt, but my back pain hasn't decreased. Could I have a pinched nerve?
Yes: A plastic surgeon can help with several options on how to proceed
Explore: It is exploratory mean they open to look and find out what it could be wrong in cases that regular x ray and ct scan does not show anything now it could be done via laparoscope.
Temporary discomfort: It also depends on what it is done to you. Laparoscopic surgery is a technique that can be used to just look inside your abdomen or perform complex operations to treat a number of conditions. In general some patients feel abdominal distension, shoulder pain and possible nausea. There may also be pain associated with abdominal incisions used to accommodate instruments and scopes.
Depends: On size, symptoms, and location. Often observed. Some hernias, e.g. Belly button may be followed without surgery, if no symptoms. Groin (inguinal or femoral) and abdominal wall (spigelian) generally get surgically repaired. Incisional hernias may as well (or not). Hernias don't go away on their own, may get bigger, may cause fullness or lump, or obstruction or kink of bowel-surgical emergency).
Abdominal surgery: Abdominal surgery is an operation performed on the abdominal contents or organs. It may be an open incision surgery or laparoscopic surgery. It could also involve abdominal wall surgery such as hernias. Many organs may need to be treated with abdominal surgery such as liver, spleen, gallbladder, small intestine, colon or large intestine & many different diseases may require abdominal surgery.
Pain: Absolutely. Just make sure you let your surgeon know where it hurts and when it hurts the most.
PT: You need to have your doctor prescribe a physical therapy evaluation to help you develop a program that will conform to your surgical healing as well. Good luck.
Since a cpap can introduce air into the abdomen, is it safe to use after a nissan fundoppocation surgery?
Yes: CPAP by itself really is not pushing air into the stomach. Some people however tend to gulp air when sleeping on cpap. Make sure you have a newer generation "smart" CPAP that adjusts pressure based on level of obstruction. Also make sure you are professionally fitted for your mask type. We routinely have patients on CPAP and bipap after nissen surgery in our hospital.
What kind of IV access (regular, picc, midline?) is typically used for abdominal anterior resection surgery?
IV access: If you are relatively healthy and do not require central line, the most is needed peripheral IV access. Your anesthesiologist knows the surgeon, his skills and potential for blood loss, (which is unlikely). Anesthesiologist will make decision what kind of access he/she needs. When the patient is asleep he can start second IV if nessasary.See 1 more doctor answer
What is abdominal endometriosis, can it be harmful to the body, and what does the surgery to remove this consist of?
Endometriosis: Endometriosis of the abdominal wall typically presents with a painful abdominal wall mass. Pain can be cyclic with menses or continuously present. Bleeding may also result. Surgery may be indicated for severe symptoms, advanced disease, or failure of medical therapy. Surgery may involve laparoscopic laser ablation or excision.
I have severe adenomyosis after my baby. Awaiting surgery. I have a severe pulling sensation in my lower right abdomen, is this related?
Likely...: But this can also represent other pelvic pathology including endometriosis and-or pelvic adhesions. Have your surgeon comprehensively evaluate your pelvic cavity at the time of surgery and not assume it is adenomyosis (endometriosis of the uterine muscle) as this really can only be diagnosed at the time of a hysterectomy.See 1 more doctor answer
