3-5 daya. If things go well during surgery and you are felling ok, there are no real issues about flying. I would ask your doctor first, however, if he / she is ok with it.
Passenger? pilot? I have had patients (mostly students) who fly home to family the same day or the next day after surgery. I generally tell my patients who pilot planes to "stay grounded" until they don't need pain medications to be comfortable. You most certainly cannot fly if you are on narcotics prescribed after surgery.
I had gallbladder surgery in 2010 using laparoscopy. Why would my surgeon use staples when I hear everyone else had dissolve stitches?
Style and preference. for the deeper layers of the incision dissolvable stitches were probably used. Usually the skin later can be closed with either staples or stitches (dissolvable or non-dissolveable). As long as the nondissolveable stitches or staples are removed in about a week, there really isn't a difference in cosmetic outcome. Sometimes staples or stitches are kept in longer depending on the location . Read more...
I lifted something heavy a week and 1/2 after gallbladder surgery via laparoscopy. Very sore around main cut. What could it be?
Hernia. Skin intact, but underlying tissue -fascia can disrupt. Be examined to be sure. Likely just sore. Read more...
