Hi, thanks for your query. I understand your concerns. Following is my reply : 1) You are right that the pain is due to laparoscopy only. 2) Generally incision is made around umbilicus for putting a scope for camera. This cuts nerves and vessels at the site. 3) Even after wound healing there will be mild inflammation in inner layers of abdomen. Thats why you have pain. 4) The sensation difference is also due to injured nerves. 5) All of these take about a year to heal completely & come back to normalcy. Especially cut nerves.6) I advice you to have multivitamin tablets containing Vit. E. This helps fasten nerve regeneration. I hope I answered your query. Regards, Dr. Mahesh Koregol
