Pregnancy?: Yes it's possible for a woman to be pregnant after laparoscopic surgery. If the period is late, run a home urine pregnancy test. They turn positive at the time the period is due. It's also possible for stress of the surgery to delay the period if the surgery was recent. If the test is negative, run another one in 7 days. If both are negative, wait to see if it's back to normal next month. ...Read more

Does heavy bleeding period are normal after laparoscopic surgery for pregnancy. D & c miss carriage, biopsies from both ovaries. Change pads 5 times?

Does heavy bleeding period are normal after laparoscopic surgery for pregnancy. D & c miss carriage, biopsies from both ovaries.  Change pads 5 times?

Too heavy?: This is a common question and I think about it from two directions: 1) short term — are you losing too much blood to be in immediate danger? And 2) long term — are you going to end up with anemia due to chronic, excessive blood loss. If you think you may be losing too much blood after any surgical procedure, you should get in touch with your doctor and go to emergency room. ...Read more

Unusual: Soreness or pain at an incision after a laparoscopic hernia repair can happen. Pain from your period at the incision is unusual. If you had the hernia repaired in your belly buttom and this is the site of pain then it is really referred pain. It may just be a coincidence. If it continues to happen then visit with your surgeon for follow up. ...Read more

About a month: If there were no complications and the incision healed well, you should be free to return to all normal activities 4 weeks after your surgery. This includes running. Start slow and work your way up. If it causes pain, back off and wait a little longer.

I recommend waiting 6 weeks if you are going to be doing HEAVY lifting, such as weight lifting. ...Read more
