Hi, do umbilicoplasties remove hernias on the belly button? Also, does the surgical procedure called a hernia repair turn an outie to an innie?

Umbilical hernias. : Umbelicoplasty should involve a repair of an umbelical hernia. But it does not have to. These are two different procedures. I would always do the following in the same procedure. 1) repair the hernia 2) do the umbelicoplasty and remove the excess tissue and 3) convert an "outie" to an "innie" ...Read more

I don't think my surgeon removed any co2 from my abdomen after surgery. Is there a way to tell if he left it all in or not?

GPIIb/IIIa use: Gpiib/iiia inhibitors are indicated for unstable angina, heart attack and stent placement and not for all different kind of surgery. Having abdomen tumor make you high risk of bleeding. Need physician supervision to monitor platelets, pt, inr, act, aptt if it is used. You already have de stents. May want to discuss about Lovenox (enoxaparin) with short half life. Your doctor has to observe you closely. Good luck. ...Read more
