How long does it take the gas from laparoscopic surgery to go away? How long after laparoscopic surgery will I feel the gas inside me? .

Varies

Surgery
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.

How is laparoscopic surgery performed?

With small incisions

Co2
Laparoscopy, in general, is performed with the patient asleep. The abdomen is filled with CO2 to elevate the abdominal wall away from the internal organs. Tubes called trocars are placed at various spots on the abdomen depending on the surgery. Through the trocars are placed a camera and surgical instruments. The incisions are generally small and the healing time faster than open surgery.

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.

Dr. Barry Rosen answered:

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.

Can Laparoscopic surgery be done on a hydrocele i want answer yes or no please say answer doctor ?

No

Hydrocele
Laparoscopic surgery is performed for intra-abdominal conditions. Hydroceles are only skin deep in scrotum & laparscopic instruments are > 1 foot long. Thus senseless to use laparoscopes for hydrocele surgery. Yes could be done, but would question sanity of any surgeon attemtping to complicate such a straightforward & simple operation.
