I am so glad to hear you are doing better. The nausea is tough to have to deal with especially when you have an incision. Best wishes on fast healing and getting back on track!!

Thanks for your input. I saw my doctor today. He said the bloating was not uncommon, since they expanded my belly a full 15 inches inflation with the Co2 gas. I was surprised to have him tell me with laparascopic, that I can resume anything and just let pain be my guide. I am going to be VERY conservative. I certainly do not want to go through that again!!!

I actually feel a lot better today. It seems that the nausea has greatly subsided. He feels that I will continue to feel better day by day.

Thanks again for your responses.

If you are still having a lot of discomfort, the best thing to do is call the clinic and talk with your Dr. I would wonder the same thing that LITA asked. Did you get information given to you at discharge to help answer the post operative questions that come up. Yes, I an an RN as well and know first hand about the time it takes the CO2 to dissipate. The gas is put into the abdominal cavity and not into the GI tract so it take a little longer for it to be absorbed into your body. I hope you find relief soon and please check in with your Dr. to help with answering your questions.

Hi. I work in the OR and see a lot of laparoscopic surgeries. I am a nurse, so please talk to your doctor if you are havning a lot of pain and/or discomfort that is getting worse. What I do know is that for laparoscopic surgery, the abdomen is inflated with CO2 gas and it takes awhile for this gas to get flushed out of the system. Some people complain of shoulder pain after this type of surgery. Also, people heal at different rates. Again, I would just say that if things are not getting better (and you are the best judge of that) talk with your doctor again - or go to emergency if it is really bad.

Hi gang,
I had a re-do ventral hernia repair (above my belly button) last Monday. the second go around was laparoscopic. I am still having quite a bit of bloating and nausea. Has anyone else had laparascopic hernia repair? When did you begin to feel like yourself again? Is it unusual to have these issues a week out?

I will be talking to my surgeon....but generally speaking, is it six weeks before you usually can resume heavier exercise?

Any input, feedback would be greatly appreciated!
:-)
