The procedure

Laparoscopy is when a small incision is made in the abdominal wall (near the belly button) and the laparoscope - a long thin tube with a high resolution camera and high intensity light - is inserted inside. Usually, carbon dioxide is filled inside the abdomen, which lifts it from other organs allowing the surgeon a proper view.

As the laparoscope moves along, your doctor gets the visual feed of your internal organs and can then diagnose and treat the condition. Over the past 35 years, it has developed into common surgical practice.

Are there any risks?

With laparotomy come the risks of general anaesthesia and surgery, but complications are very, very rare. The risk due to death in this procedure is very very small (about 3 in 1 lakh cases). Moreover, surgeries at Eva Women’s hospital are performed by excellent surgeons. They also offer 3D laparoscopy surgery in Gujarat, so, you’re in good hands.

Some risks may be skin irritation and post-operative bladder infection, pelvic infections and adhesions, which are all treatable.

Post-operative care

Laparoscopies are usually done outpatient. What this means it patients aren’t kept overnight, although you may be kept for observation for a few hours to a maximum of total stay of 24 hours..

While this isn’t a complicated or dangerous procedure at all, you may experience some pain right after surgery. Sometimes the next few periods are also more painful after this procedure. This is because internal healing takes longer than external healing.

You might feel cold as a result of the anaesthesia, and may also feel groggy the next few hours after surgery. So it’s best to have a friend around!
