Had spleen removed laparoscopically almost 3 mo ago due to itp. I still have some pain and tingling mostly near my navel. Is that normal?

Healing pains: You had your splenectomy performed by laparoscopy. It may have been multiple small holes or a single port at the umbilicus. The doctor morcelized the spleen in a bag to remove it. If you are 3 months after then the pain may be from the nerves growing back at the site. As long as no drainage or redness then continue to observe. If it is hot, tender to touch, or draining fluid then call. ...Read more

You need to see your doc! ...Read more
