I have a laparoscopic surgery to have my uterus detached from the fascia from previous c-section. What is the average recovery time on this procedure?

I have a laparoscopic surgery to have my uterus detached from the fascia from previous c-section. What is the average recovery time on this procedure?

Very quickly: If all the physician is doing is taking down scar tissue (which is what it sounds like) then you will have a few small (1cm) incisions which will heal very quickly. I'm guessing you'll be up doing your normal activities of life within a day or so, and you'll be pain free after 2-3 weeks. Every woman is different, but this is a minimally invasive surgery. Good luck! ...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?

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
