Does swelling cause weight gain after laparascopic surgery/ovary removal? The incision was made bigger to remove the cyst. 2 weeks and still swelled.

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. Just make sure the wound looks ok and is not swollen because of an infection, where it will be red, very tender and may even have drainage. If this is the case, then you should see your surgeon. ...Read more

Ganglion cyst on toe, 1/4 inch wide. Doc wants to surgically remove. Draining didnt work. Cyst not bothering me or causing discomfort. Surgery needed?

No sooner No later.: The only thing that's "needed" is that you feel comfortable with having the cyst removed. If you have no discomfort, then have it removed when you're ready. After all, the cyst will probably still be there when you are ready. ...Read more

Mum, 64, had successful lap surgery removed right ovary & cyst. Post op care? Also water boils near incision sites. Using lactofine lotion on them ok?

Mum, 64, had successful lap surgery removed right ovary & cyst. Post op care? Also water boils near incision sites. Using lactofine lotion on them ok?

Follow up: After laparoscopic surgery, most patients can resume normal activities relatively quickly. Consult your surgeon in this regard. "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

What will doctor do during gallbladder surgery follow up? After removing bandages, will he put anything on incision scars? There's no stitches/staples

What will doctor do during gallbladder surgery follow up? After removing bandages, will he put anything on incision scars?  There's no stitches/staples

Not likely: He will check the wound to be sure it is healing without infection or herniation. He will ask some questions regarding whether you are having diarrhea as some folks do after gb surgery. If so there is a medicine that can be given to treat the diarrhea. Should be a short visit. He will then tell you when he releases you to full activity. ...Read more

Can i apply ice pack on my dissolvable stitches? Insision was made by bellybutton for larposcopic surgry to remove a cyst. Taking meds too

Can i apply ice pack on my dissolvable stitches? Insision was made by bellybutton for larposcopic surgry to remove a cyst. Taking meds too

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.

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 more

If there is no visible string, an office procedure to retrieve it with a flexible fiberoptic scope (cystoscopy) is a rapid and relatively painless method to remove the stent. ...Read more
