Laparoscopic surgery: Swelling after laparoscopic surgery is caused by the gas used inside the abdomen. Usually carbon dioxide is used, and this absorbs in about 1 day.

Less invasive: Back in the day, before imaging, and before scopes the ability for a doc to access the abdominal cavity, a joint or the chest was limited to physical exam and open surgery. Now we have imaging, ;mri, ct scan to help more precisely diagnose and we have scopes to see inside with less disruption to the patient, easier recovery and usually equal outcome. Talk to your surgeon. Be well.

See a Surgeon: Basically, if you have documented reflux disease either by history or testing such as egd or ph probe test, then fundoplication can be considered. Medications can help with reflux, however if you are young or the risk of surgery is minimal, the fundoplication can keep you from needing to take medications for your lifetime. If medications don't work, then surgery can be considered.
Time.: Generally the surgeon tries to remove as much air as possible after the exam, but some always remains. This air will pass with time.See 2 more doctor answers
I'm from the UK & having laparoscopic surgery to remove my gallbladder. Will they let me keep my gallstone?
Perhaps: You can request it but I'm not sure if it's always possible. Because the gallstones are a primary reason for the surgery, the removed gallbladder and gallstones are sent to the pathologist for examination. Hopefully, they keep the gallstones after analysis so they can give it to you, especially if there are multiple stones. At least one stone will be broken so they can analyze it. Just ask the dr.
