For how long does it take to heal from an omentectomy before you can return to work?

For how long does it take to heal from an omentectomy before you can return to work?

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. ...Read more

How much time does it take to heal from an omentectomy before you can return 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 . ...Read more

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?

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. ...Read more
