Had larposcopic surgery yesterday is it safe to apply icepack on the stitches to releave some of the pain?
Yes: The use of ice packs to the surgical site will help decrease swelling and help ease pain. Do not keep it on for a long period as you do not want to cause problems with decreased blood flow to the surgical site. Also the cold is unpleasant after a while, which is nature's way of telling us to stop using it for a while. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It's better to call to see what the surgeon prefers. Hope you feel better soon. ...Read more
