Not related to surge: Your weight gain is not related to surgery. If you really want to loose weight you will, first you have to be motivated and focused for it, reduce your caloric intake (don't eat too much junk food), count your calories join a gym for regular progressive exercises to burn your body fat, you will see the change.

Do you suggest laparoscopic surgery for ovarian cyst prior to open surgery?

Do you suggest laparoscopic surgery for ovarian cyst prior to open surgery?

Yes: If a surgery is amendable to laparoscopic, then I always recommend going that route. The recovery is faster, the pain is less, lower rates of infections. Not all surgeries can be done laparoscopically, but if it can be then do it.

Dizzy: No, not really normal. You might be a little dehydrated or may have had some blood loss, both of which can make you a little lightheaded. You should see your gynecologist.

I need a laposcopic done for ovarian cyst. They are very large. My insurance is saying they are a pre exsiting con. What should I do to get surgery?

I need a laposcopic done for ovarian cyst. They are very large. My insurance is saying they are a pre exsiting con. What should I do to get surgery?

Very complicated: Every insurance plan makes up its own rules. You may be able to wait 6 months and then be covered. You may have to change plans. New health laws may make pre-existing condition exclusions illegal. If that passes in the country, in your state, or with your plan, then you may be in luck. This is a constantly frustrating issue, but you may have to play the game in order to have your procedure done.

What causes abnormal heavy bleeding for 20days so far after laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis and ovarian cysts and having prostap injection?

What causes abnormal heavy bleeding for 20days so far after laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis and ovarian cysts and having prostap injection?

Bleeding: If you had surgery for endometriosis, that could cause your bleeding postoperatively. If you got any medications to reduce future endometriosis growth, this may cause continued bleeding as well. If you did get lupron, (leuprolide) the bleeding should diminish after 2-3 weeks and you may not have a period for 2 - 3 months. You should follow up with your doctor to discuss these symptoms.

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!
