This may take 6 months to yr to regain. Make sure its ok with your dr before doing any vigorous core muscle exercises.See 1 more doctor answer
Pancreaticoduodenect: After a whipple procedure, the most common complication is delayed gastric emptying, a condition in which the stomach takes too long to empty its contents. The most serious potential complication is abdominal infection due to leakage where the pancreas is connected to the intestine. This occurs in approximately 10% of patients and is usually managed by a combination of draining and antibiotics.
Whipple type: Pancreatectomy, or radical pancreatico-duodenectomy) is an extensive operation. Besides infection, hemorrhage, and possible injury to adjacent organs (there are many organs and vital structures adjacent to duodenum and pancreas), some complications include pancreatic fistula, intestinal obstruction, liver failure, diabetes, malabsorption, progression of malignancy, and even perioperative death.
Bariatric Surgery: Bariatric surgery has short term and long term complications, too numerous to discuss here. These include bleeding, infection and healing issues right after surgery, and digestive problems, problems absorbing vitamins and minerals, hernias, and failure to maintain weight loss long term. Many bariatric surgeons work with counsellors and nutritionists to cover all this in detail to help decide.See 1 more doctor answer
Many: A pancreatoduodenectomy has many sites of reconstruction that can cause problems. The CD is implanted into the jejunum. If there is a leak, bile accumulates in a cavity. Using a T tube and drains minimizes this problem as well as picks up ascending cholangitis from ERCP. The pancreas duct on the transected body should be implanted into the jejunum to assure pancreas function, but can also leak.
Unclear question: But, let me try. Hernia surgery, like all surgeries, has some risks. About 1% will recur. Chronic pain or bleeding are rare but possible. Graft infection rate is low but real, about 0.27-0.73 % based on ope vs laparoscopic technique. Post op pain keeps one off work 1-3 weeks. I hope this helps. Good luck.
See your surgeon: I do not know when you had the surgery. Was it recent or longer time ago? Pains early after surgery not uncommon, but if getting worse with nausea and vomiting need to see your surgeon soon. If the surgery was more than 4-6 weeks ago see your surgeon or a gastroenterologist for other evaluations.
Swelling: Swelling or fluid in the knee is most common minor complication after meniscus surgery. Its easily drained by your surgeon. Other complications are recurrent tearing of the meniscus, persistent pain, infection, bleeding, joint stiffness or loss or range of motion, and damage to neurovascular structures are remotely possible. Some of these complications may require addition surgery. Overall, meniscus surgery has a very high success rate.
See list: There are many potential complications associated with spine surgery. The most common are as follows: infection, dural tear, epidural hematoma's, damage to the spinal cords and/or spinal nerves, thrombophlebitis, anesthetic complications, hardware breakage, persistent pain. This is not an all inclusive list. You should talk to your spinal surgeon.
Everything: From infection, poor / non healing, incision / repair breakdown to higher risk of cardiopulmonary complications are all reported with tobacco use. However, good outcomes are also noted with patients who quit tobacco use before surgery and do not resume smoking till their healing is complete. If you can't or don't want to quit for good - at least take a break around the time of your surgery.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends on: Location and size of hernia. In general, risks of surgery are infection, hemorrhage, and damage to adjacent organs. Your surgeon will weigh the risk of surgery versus risk of no surgery and make a recommendation. If it is an inguinal hernia repair, it is a common operation with very low risk of complications, in general.
CS Complications: Post Cataract Surgery Issues/Complications: need for glasses still, need YAG laser: PCO, dry eye sx/worsening, eyelid droop, recurrent uveitis, eye bleeding, needing another surgery/laser (for multiple reasons: refractive surprise, swelling of macula CME, IOL dislocation, failing cornea), rare: infection, retinal hole, detachment, loss of vision, loss of eye, loss of life; eyedoc2020@blogspot.

It depends: Depending on the surgeon, type of cataract operation, and condition of the eye at the time of surgery, complications that can result in decreased vision typically occur in less than 1 in 1000 procedures. Although some non-vision threatening conditions may occur more commonly, they will not affect the results. Surgeon experience and technique is key, though.See 2 more doctor answers
