How long will my stomach be swollen after a tubal ligation?

How long will my stomach be swollen after a tubal ligation?

Not long: Incisional swelling last only for a few days, but if it stays red and oozes pus, see your doctor immediately. Whole belly swelling may be related to the bowels, so get checked as soon as possible if you think that it's abnormal.

My stomach is still swollen 4 days after my tubal ligation. Is this normal? I had my left tube taken out because it was filled with fluid. My right one was clamped.

Yes it is not unusua: In leparoscopic tubal ligation if that was in your case they use gas to separate skin and muscles from the internal organs and it is Normal to have swelling and it will go away by itself

See your surgeon: A "severely distended" belly after a c/section deserves an evaluation. If the incision is red or draining, or you have a fever, vomiting or severe pain, you should go to the ER ASAP. If you are feeling well except for this, you need to call or see your surgeon in person. Most surgeons would rather see you in person. If there is a problem, they can deal with it early. Best wishes!

8yrs ago I had a tubal ligation! The past two weeks I have had abdomen pain, nausea and a 2 day cycle! What can it be? Thanks

Tubal: 1-2/1000 tubals fail. Your symptoms could be related to a wide variety of things including food poisoning, stress, gastritis, etc. If you miss your next period run a home pregnancy test.

Several things: There are several things that can cause this including an ovarian cyst and problems with the sigmoid colon. Pain is your body's way of telling you that something is wrong. It is always a good idea to listen and see someone to find out what is causing the pain.

Adhesions?: If there's going to be a serious complication from tubal ligation, it usually occurs in the first two or three weeks after surgery. However, you can develop scar tissue from any surgery which can cause symptoms later on. You can also develop a hernia in the area of an incision. Best to see a doc and get checked out.

Lower abdominal pain 20 months after tubal ligation?

Lower abdominal pain 20 months after tubal ligation?

Doubt related: As it has been almost 2 years since the tubal, it is unlikely to be related. However, it is not unreasonable to check a pregnancy test, especially if you have missed a period.

See a doctor: That doesn't sound normal. I would definitely see the doctor who performed the procedure to be checked out.

See obgyn: Need total history and exams and likely ultrasound exam. Usually cleared testing before tubal ligation. There are other abdominal complications from surgery that need to be checked. Bowel injury, tubal damage, bleeding etc.

Tubal ligation done 2 years mirena (levonorgestrel) inserted july 2014 having painful abdominal spasms and extremely emotional. Is this normal?

Tubal ligation done 2 years mirena (levonorgestrel) inserted july 2014 having painful abdominal spasms and extremely emotional. Is this normal?

Double therapy?: Your brief history sound a bit strange unless something is missed there. With tubal ligation done there is no need in additional contraceptive therapy with Mirena (levonorgestrel) device. As far as symptoms you are complaining of, yes Levonorgestrel (active ingredient in Mirena (levonorgestrel)) may cause it. Go to our PMD or GYN, get qualified advice after your entire history is reviewed and you are examined.

Tubal ligation 3 years ago, LMP 7/23/15 3 faint + test, what are the symptoms of abdominal pg? My doctor didn't give me a clear answer when I asked..

Need confirmation: The first thing to do is to confirm the positive pregnancy test. Pregnancies after tubal ligation are rare but possible. A BHCG blood test can be done. If a pregnancy is confirmed then the BHCG level can be reviewed to determine if a sonogram would be helpful yet.

I'm having pressure and stretching feeling in my lower abdomen I was spotting a few days ago and I had a tubal ligation 15months ago what could it be?

I'm having pressure and stretching feeling in my lower abdomen I was spotting a few days ago and I had a tubal ligation 15months ago what could it be?

Pelvic discomfort: It is possible that your discomfort is due to adhesions for the tubal ligation. After surgery the body makes stringy bits of fascia to heal the wound inside. Sometimes these adhesions give a pulling sensation or even pain. On the other hand, you might have a UTI or other infection which will cause those symptoms, so best to get checked.
