Laparoscopy Procedure

Laparoscopy is a medical procedure in which a small incision is made in the abdomen. Once the incision is made, a small instrument called a laparoscope is inserted which gives the surgeon an internal view of the abdominal cavity. The camera on the instrument transmits the images to a TV monitor. The laparoscope provides for special tools to be inserted from the instrument as well as through other small incisions made nearby. The recovery time from laparoscopy tends to be faster than traditional surgery that requires larger incisions. To learn more about laparoscopy procedures, take a look at the questions below that have been answered by the Experts.

Is it normal to have pain six weeks after having laparoscopy of ovarian cysts due to excessive exercise?

Experiencing some pain in the area where the laparoscopy was performed, a few weeks after the surgery, is typical. This is especially true if there was extensive work done during the laparoscopy. Furthermore, everyone has a different level of healing. Some people heal fast while others may take longer to recoup. While exercise can generally cause some tenderness and pain in the area of the surgery, after six weeks, there is usually no threat of injuring one's self internally. Since there is pain from over exertion, it is best to begin slowly when trying to return to an exercise routine. Once the body adjusts to the workout, the extent of the workout can be increased.

When will the pain decline after having laparoscopy for severe endometriosis?

In many cases, laparoscopy is often used to diagnose endometriosis. When this is being done, sometimes, doctors only remove some of the tissue and continue to treat the condition with a hormone treatment such as Depo-Lupron. With certain patients, endometriosis pain can be completely removed if the problem is lasered or cauterized. In other words, if the laparoscopy successfully removes all of the endometriosis, the woman will typically stop experiencing painful periods. In some cases, however, hormonal suppression of the endometriosis may be a better route if the woman continues to have intense pain after laparoscopy.

When is it safe to take a bath or have sex after laparoscopy and hysteroscopy with D&C?

In most cases, when dealing with any abdominal surgery, it is best to avoid sexual intercourse for at least 4-6 weeks. However, when laparoscopy is done, the healing time is generally closer to 4 weeks although the healing period is usually determined by the doctor who performed the surgery.

Generally, when a woman has sexual intercourse for the first time following laparoscopy, the experience may be uncomfortable so it is best to take things slow. If the woman experiences bleeding or extremely sharp pain following sex, a consultation with her doctor is usually in order. As for bathing, usually one week after surgery is considered safe for a bath.

Can laparoscopy cause someone’s cycles to be delayed?

Case details: Treated stage 2 endometriosis

Many times, the stress of undergoing surgery is enough to mess with a menstrual cycle. Of course there are other issues that may affect a woman's cycle. Polyps, cysts, infection, weight fluctuation and thyroid issues are a few of these possibilities. It is also advisable to get a blood pregnancy test done for a woman who is sexually active and has missed a period. If the pregnancy test is negative, hormonal imbalances or one of the other issues mentioned above could be the cause for the irregular period.

Laparoscopy is used on a daily basis for a number of surgeries including repairs made to the female reproductive organs. As is the case with any procedure, many questions may arise about a laparoscopy. If you have questions or concerns about a laparoscopy, ask an Expert who can provide medical insights and information and put your fears to rest.
