Recovery time varies: Recover time will vary depending on many factors including age, general health of the patient, infection control, smoker or not, blood sugar control, the exact type of procedure, and post-operative and follow up care. Discuss it with your surgeon and get their opinion as to what they feel is a reasonable recovery time for you.

I have a laparoscopic surgery to have my uterus detached from the fascia from previous c-section. What is the average recovery time on this procedure?

I have a laparoscopic surgery to have my uterus detached from the fascia from previous c-section. What is the average recovery time on this procedure?

Very quickly: If all the physician is doing is taking down scar tissue (which is what it sounds like) then you will have a few small (1cm) incisions which will heal very quickly. I'm guessing you'll be up doing your normal activities of life within a day or so, and you'll be pain free after 2-3 weeks. Every woman is different, but this is a minimally invasive surgery. Good luck!

What is the recovery time after laparoscopic surgery for exotic pregnancy tubal removal inside and out?

Depends: Total recovery time for laparoscopic surgery varies but usually ranges from 1-2 weeks depending on the patient. Many women resume their daily activities within the first week of recovery. Factors such as your overall health, your support system at home, and your age will also be factors in your recovery. Follow up visits with your doctor are very important.

I done hydrocyle laparoscopic surgery my right testicles now on e year complete now when my cock jumping time I feel pain in testicle what is reason?

Very unusual: Laparoscopic surgery is performed within the abdominal cavity. Have no knowledge of any surgeon using a laparoscope to repair a hydrocele which is located only skin deep in the scrotum. Unclear what you mean by "cock jumping time". Suggest you see a different urologist if this is bothering you.

Had laparoscopic surgery done 2 wks ago and every time I move or get up my incision in the belly button starts to sting. Is it normal for it to sting.

Yes and itch: The incision is healing. Keep the area clean, if you notice any oozing, redness or fever report back to your surgeon. Take it slow, should be fine!

Does heavy bleeding period are normal after laparoscopic surgery for pregnancy. D & c miss carriage, biopsies from both ovaries. Change pads 5 times?

Does heavy bleeding period are normal after laparoscopic surgery for pregnancy. D & c miss carriage, biopsies from both ovaries. Change pads 5 times?

Too heavy?: This is a common question and I think about it from two directions: 1) short term - are you losing too much blood to be in immediate danger? And 2) long term - are you going to end up with anemia due to chronic, excessive blood loss. If you think you may be losing too much blood after any surgical procedure, you should get in touch with your doctor and go to emergency room.

Can you tell me about laparoscopic surgery?

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.

Can I fly after laparoscopic surgery?

How long ago: Was your surgery? Was it yesterday or 6 weeks ago? Were there any complications? The easiest thing to do would be to call your surgeon and ask when you could fly.

When can I go back to school after get laparoscopic surgery?

When can I go back to school after get laparoscopic surgery?

Depends: I would assume this is laparoscopy of the pelvis. Some can return the next day, but most will wait two to three days before returning to school. It all depends upon how well you feel. Don't lift anything above ten pounds until a week has past to allow the incisions to heal.

After laparoscopic surgery, if the stitches have been removed already, is it necessary to protect still the wound with any plast?

Up to you: If there is no drainage, looks dry most will leave it alone with out dressings, some cover with bandage, or a band aid. In a healing process surgical wound get sealed in 24 hrs, will not allow the bacteria to get inside.
