Varies

Open-uri20130404-11642-1rrnqd2
The gas will go away quickly in most cases. The specific time will depend on a number of factors including how long was the surgery, what was done during the surgery, how heavy is the patient, how quickly can the patient be up and ambulating, etc. It can take anywhere from a few hours to a few days.

Is it normal to have shoulder pain from the gas a month after laparoscopic surgery?

No.

Open-uri20120710-12223-1k5dy8m
Shoulder pain following laparoscopy is believed to be due to irritation of the diaphragm by the carbon dioxide that is used to inflate the abdomen. This pain should resolve within 2 to 3 days after surgery. I am afraid that you are barking up the wrong tree.

Shoulder pain from the CO2 used in laparoscopy only lasts maybe 1-3 days. See your family doctor for a shoulder examination.

Dr. Barry Rosen answered:

My bowels are awakening after laparoscopic surgery (blocked intestine) a week ago but why does stomach keepfilling with gas/bile & vomiting every 24hr?

Call your Surgeon

Vomiting after surgery for a small bowel obstruction warrants a call to your surgeon. Common causes include a recurrent obstruction (esp if you are not passing gas from below) or an ileus, often in response to narcotic pain medication. Hope it's just a false alarm.

Dr. Neeoo W. Chin answered:

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

Depends

Pelvis
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.

I have to get laparoscopic surgery done to removed endometriosis and fibroids, how painful will it be? Recovery

Its hard to say

Surgery
everyone's pain tolerance is different. Typical recovery from laparoscopic surgery is about 2 weeks. Assuming no complications. Talk to your Doctor about pain medication usually prescribed after surgery.
