I had my first laparoscopy and diathermy on Monday. I was in a lot of pain on Tuesday, mainly caused by the remaining gas in my body. I think much of it has gone, but it is now Sunday and I am still suffering from a pain in my left side, just under my ribcage, as well as headaches. How long have people continued to suffer from the pain caused by the gas following the surgery?
I've been off work all week, but still seem to be finding it very tiring to do even simplest of tasks such as doing the washing or making dinner. Is this normal?
