If you don't like with his advice, you can always get a second opinion, but I think it is going to be the same. ...Read more

If you think this is a problem, call your surgeon and get in to be checked out to make sure nothing else going on. Be well. ...Read more

Laparoscopy: Each doctor has his/her own skill set and comfort level with different types of procedures. Without seeing the pictures its not possible to make a recommendation.
