Depends on reason: Omentectomy is a procedure where the lining of the abdominal cavity, the omentum is removed. But this is usually done for a certain reason, in many cases associated with cancer debunking operations, such as for ovarian or gastric cancer. This is often a fairly large open operation, so healing is varied and dependent on what reason it was done for, if for cancer, what the extent of involvement is.
Usually several wks.: It is rare for an omentectomy to be performed for benign disease. It is usually carried out because of the presence of metastatic tumor such as ovarian Ca due to the presence of TGF-B. If there was cancer then chemo would be needed prior to returning to work. If prophylactically performed 2-3ks would be sufficient. If for other reasons relating to benign disease then 2-3 wks would hold up.
Are there any less radical/extreme methods to surgically remove visceral fat than a full omentectomy? (background:long story)
Diet: Diet and exercise is the only safe way to decrease visceral fat.
Are there any less radical/extreme methods to surgically remove visceral fat than a full omentectomy? (long story, ´diet and exercise´ won´t cut it)
Really, surgery??: To remove visceral fat...totally NO Wheat, sugar, potato, starch, fruit juice, . .. EVER! Did you really do this much and have no success? Exercise is relevant for health, NOT relevant for weight loss. The questioned surgery has much potential for complication with omental scar tissue...beware! Www. Blatmanhealthandwellness. Com
Can you tell me how are the risks of performing an intra-abdominal liposuction not the same as omentectomy?
Liposuction: Liposuction is not (intentionally) done intra-abdominally. This would likely result in intestinal perforation or organ injury. Omentectomy - which is the traditional surgical removal of the fatty omentum - does not involve the use of liposuction equipment, but rather more standard surgical methods.
Because of excessive visceral fat accumulation due to medical issues, are there any procedures like laparascopic (supracolic) omentectomy that will work (safe)? Or any other medical treatments? What kind of specialist could I consult? Not obese. .
More info needed: How was this diagnosed and are you having any symptoms? The momentum can be easily removed with an open operation, and it might be possible via laparoscope, depending on the size of the momentum. The question is what symptoms are you having, there may be another problem as well. A general surgeon would be the one to consult.

Currently being considered for coblation nucleoplasty trial (cervical). Contained herniation. I'm in early 20's. Possible long term complications?
Coblation: Understand, these treatments are low (not zero) risk, but for what purpose? Contained herniation means that there is no pressure on the nerves, and the disc is simply not in a "normal" location within the disc space. Study? Fine. These haven't worked except temporarily in the lumbar spine. I would be pessimistic. Maximize mckenzie pt. Not heat/us/tens as they are useless. If no other option, fine.
Complete your Q: Incompelete Question. Complication of Untreated which disease?
Uterine Rupture: The most common complications are a failed vbac & need for vaginal bypass (c-section). The most serious are uterine dehiscence (separation of the uterine scar) or rupture. This can lead to catastrophic results with hemorrhage, emergency surgery, hysterectomy, and fetal loss. Major point - please vbac in a hospital where your OB can keep you safe and have access to immediate surgery if needed.See 2 more doctor answers
Short and long term: There are both short and long term complications of tpn. Short term complications include infections, and imbalance of electrolytes, fluid status and blood glucose levels. Long term TPN can result in loss of IV access and also liver injury and cirrhosis. If you remain on TPN for more than 2-3 months, you should be evaluated at an intestine failure center which may consider intestine transplant.See 1 more doctor answer
Discuss w/ Retina MD: The most common complication from a vitrectomy is progression of cataract. At your age of 40, that may not be a major factor. Other risks that occur less than 5% of the time are retinal detachment, and bleeding. Post-operative infections from vitrectomies are rare. Depending on what the underlying condition is that you have, there may be a risk of disease progression and need for further surgery.See 1 more doctor answer
ESR is a marker of: Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is a marker of inflammation, thus high inflammatory processes cause ESR to be higher. Infections, cancers, uncontrolled rheumatologic diseases, and endovascular inflammation (i.e. Arteritis) are examples. Thus, elevated ESR values suggest inflammatory conditions which should be sought and treated. Esr is not a complication, but a marker! Consult doc. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
