Laparoscopic surgery

What is Laparoscopic surgery?

Laparoscopy is a surgery that uses a thin, lighted tube put through a cut (incision) in the belly to look at the abdominal organs or the female pelvic organs. Laparoscopy is used to find problems such as cysts, adhesions, fibroids and infection. Tissue samples can be taken for biopsy through the tube (laparoscope).

I'm two day post op. I had Laparoscopic. Is it normal to have enormous amount of pain one side and not much on the other? All 4 incision sites are bruise plus the places were my organs were taking out are also busied. Is this normal? Also I tried water and gaiter Aid the only liquid that seems to be helping me get some of the gases moving and out is to drink carbonated drinks. I was told the reason why I bleed for 10 straight weeks is my uterus was very enlarged with fibroids packed in there. He took both ovaries and put a hormone patch right on my belly right around were my uterus was. I was told to wear that in its place for one week. One more question. I have been putting heat on my belly. Is it true that will cause increase blood flow? Should I stop doing this and use ice for the swelling?

I had a laparoscopic surgery on 7/9/12 and on 7/15/2012 had intercourse which caused me cold sweats, lightheadness, dizziness, loss of coordination and fell on my behind, like 2 hours after intercourse. The dr removed a 4.5 hemorrhagic corpus luteum cysts on left ovary, moderate endometriosis, and removed scar tissue from opening of fallopian tubes due to ruptured appendicitis 14 years ago. I have been really scared that I damage my surgery since I have been trying to get pregnant for 5 years. After the intercourse I have been having pressure in abdomen during bowel movement, a lot of lower back pain, brown vaginal discharge (had menstrual on 7/10/2012), stabbing pain on left ovary (where he removed cysts) that comes and go, NO FEVER. My questions are the following:
are the stabbing pain mostly on left ovary and sometimes right ovary normal, is the pain due to surgery or to the one time I had intercourse? Did I damage the surgery? am I still at risk for an infection, such as PID? Is the pressure i feel during bowel movement normal due to surgery and gas inflated in abdomen on 7/9/2012?

doctor1 MD

Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
Since you had surgery on 9th July and then intercourse on 15th, six days is enough time for the internal stitches to heal. The mild pain you are having is likely to be due to local tissue swelling which is likely after such a surgery.
Your surgery is intact....

Hi I have a small scar to the upper left of my umbilicus and was wondering what it could be from. I have always had it but do not know how because I am adopted. I was asked by a doctor if I had had laparoscopic surgery but am not aware if I have. I am wondering if it could be related to something with my gastrointestinal tract as I have now started to develop some problems within the last couple of years. I was adopted when I was 5 and I am now almost 20, I am 1.75m tall and weight about 70kgs at most although I have lost some weight for unknown reasons lately

doctor1 MD

OK don't worry usually scar near the umbilicus as a result of any surgical procedure or may be due to trauma . since you have weight loss and some problems kindly consult a gastro specialist

Dear Sir, I was detected a 11 mm stone at the junction of my ureter , just above the bladder , in Oct 2012. I was advised Laproscopic surgery procedure. But then I decided to take some homeo medicines before I decide to undergo surgery. I started Homeo medicines, and I felt the stone moving to Bladder and last week it came out of bladder, but it did not come out, but is struck...may be some where near postrate...not sure. But I am having burning sensation during passing urine and the flow is also disrupted due to obstruction, and takes double time to empty bladder. My question is. 1. How would this stone be expelled..i mean what medicine should I take? 2. Will it have any secondary infection?

doctor1 MD

Hi thanks for your question.
you had ureteric stone ,which has passed into bladder,this is not due to medicine but due to normal peristalsis of ureter.
The burning sensation your having while passing urine is due to urinary tract infection due to stone.
Obstruction while passing urine is also due...

I had a hysterectomy (laparoscopic) 13 days ago. I was instructed to take milk of magnesia for constipation and straining after surgery. I felt great after surgery and was up and about after no time. 9 days post-op felt very constipated, so I took 2 T. of Milk of Magnesia. Since then, I have not been able to keep anything in my stomach. The diarrhea was ridiculous on Friday evening through Saturday afternoon, then I ate some soup on Saturday night, and I had to get up 4 times in the night with diarrhea. Is this a stomach bug or something normal from the surgery?
