Dr. George T Tsai answered:

How soon after laparotomy surgery is it okay to have sex?

It depends

It is best to check with your operating surgeon. Activity release is usually managed by your surgeon as only he or she knows the extent of the procedure and whether your recovery is satisfactory. However, most patients who had uneventful laparotomies do heal sufficiently by 4-6 wks to allow for resumption of most physical activities - including sex.

What is the difference between laparoscopy orlaparotomy surgery?

Incision size

Laparoscopy
Laparoscopy is done with a scope and small incisions. Laparotomy is done with a larger incision that can accommodate the surgeons hands inside the abdomen or pelvis.

My laparotomy incision is infected. Had surgery 11-25 went to er friday 12-13 and got antibiotics. looks worse and belly is numb. Wound is bright red?

See doc NOW

Wounds
What you describe really does sound like a post-surgical wound infection. This is very serious and should be re-evaluated to make sure that the antibiotics you were prescribed are working. Sometimes these need to be given IV, or a change needs to be made. Go to ER now. I hope you get better soon.

22yr old, had exploratory laparotomy 2 years ago due to retroperitoneal hematoma. Now, I have abdominal pain. Heating/less movement helps with pain. I am young and do not want another surgery. Advice?

Retroperitoneal

Bruise
hematoma is a rare condition, unless you are on anticoagulants or have an anatomical abnormality. Recurrence is even more rare. This episode of pain is probably not hematoma, but something else. Consult your doctor for definitive diagnosis and advice.

Dr. Michael D. Fox answered:

What are the chances i will need a laparotomy and not a laparoscop?

Depends

Cancer
It depends on the skill of your surgeon and the concern over the possibility of cancer which relates to your age etc. In our hands, in young patients with "big" cysts up to say 12 cm or so, we would almost always approach with laparoscopy unless a malignancy is strongly suspected. This would be rare in the young age groups. depends on the planned surgery and the indication

Dr. Barry Rosen answered:

Is a C section a laparotomy operation?

Yes

C-section
A laparotomy is an incision into the abdominal wall to directly access the abdominal cavity. The uterus is in the abdominal cavity, so a csection requires a laparotomy. However, the incision is usually performed in the bikini line; exploratory laparotomy incisions are usually made in the midline.

How should a 5 day post-op laparotomy look?

More information pls

Surgery
Was the wound closed primarily? Are there staples? Is there drainage from the wound? Is it red? Do you have fever? These are the main things I look for in post-op laparotomy wounds. If you have concern, call your surgeon.
