    Default Laparoscopy

    I am due to have a laparoscopy on the 4the April. Just wanted to know how sore I will expect to be the next day. I have to work and wondering how it will go.

    I have had four laps and was quite sore for 24 -36 hours after. I personally took the day off. If your job requires not much physical activity you may be ok.
    good luck.

    Depends what they find when they get in there. I had a lap that turned into a more major surgery as I had organ binding that was separated and stage 4 endo removed from pretty much everywhere. So I was very sore for a few days and it was several weeks before I felt normal

    Definitely get a few days (a week if possible) off work afterwards - you will be quite tender. It may be keyhole surgery, but they are still cutting into your abdominal muscles!

    I'm a bit weird and went back to work the afternoon of my lap. But I would have liked a couple if days.

    Had op Thursday afternoon, had Friday off work, could stand up normally by Sunday evening and went back to work Monday. No "extra" surgery.

    I have had 2 laps just recently and would definitely recommend a week off! It all depends on what they find in there too.

    I'd recomend having a few days off. Even if your incisions don't hurt much (mine were not too bad, just mild discomfort) the pain/bloated feeling from the gas they use can be really bad. I've had two, one of them I literally couldn't walk properly for about 3 days and it took a week for the bloated feeling to go

    Oh no all your comments don't give much hope. I have already rescheduled it due to work. It's on a Thursday I can't really take the Friday off but.I guess I shall see. Not sure what they will find.
