Does swelling cause weight gain after laparascopic surgery/ovary removal? The incision was made bigger to remove the cyst. 2 weeks and still swelled.
Maybe: Abdominal swelling can be normal up to 4-6 weeks after surgery due to the inflammation and healing from the inside where surgery was done as well as because of the incision healing.

"water boils" near incision sites are frequently blisters related to the adhesive in the dressings used to cover the incisions. Keep these sites clean and dry, and see your surgeon in his office for a postop visit as directed by him. ...Read more

Probably OK: I can't think of a reason you can't since we generally recommend ice post surgery to reduce normal swelling. With that said, you should have been given directions when you left the surgical center that say what to do & not do but if that is not clear, call them & ask. It's better to call to see what the surgeon prefers. Hope you feel better soon. ...Read more
Can plastic surgeon remove rejected hernia mesh n tighten muscles while removing fat/skin. Will it help fix my hernia rejection pain what about ins.
Not likely: Honestly most surgeons will avoid touching anything that they didn't surgically place if they can. And since most plastic surgeon's don't do hernia repairs(mostly the realm of general surgeons), they are unlikely to address possible mesh issues, while completing a panniculectomy or some variant of one. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
