How Can Hernia Found While Having Ovarian Cysts Removed Be Repaired?

I had ovarian cysts removed 6 days ago through a laparoscopic procedure. They found a hernia during surgery but was unable to repair it at that time. I have been off meds since day 2. The last 24 hours I have felt lightheaded, even while sitting/lying down. A headache came a few hours ago. Is this light headedness normal? I feel like I ve had a few alcoholic drinks.

Hi,

If it was an abdominal surgery both the things would have been possible which could not be done through laparoscopic surgery. Though head ache, light headedness can be seen in few post operative patients, it's advisable to get earliest check up by operating surgeon.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
