Still having pains after lap

I had my laparoscopy on the 31st March, 10 days ago now and my stomach is still painful.

They only made one incision in my belly button but i have a constant pain to the right side of my belly button and i get the occasional sharp pain which takes my breath away depending on how i move. They only found a polyp and an impression of Adenomyosis. When i went back to the doctors a few days after the op, i got told my pains were normal as they have to use force to get the camera in ect.. Surely i shouldn't have this pain still? It is sore when i press it as well.

Has anyone else had this? Should i see my GP or leave it to 'heal' longer?

Hey tanyannh

I had pain still two weeks in but it was perfectly normal 3 weeks on.

Try not to worry but if it is red, sore or unbearable speak to your gp.

Hope your recovery goes well! X

Hi, your organs inside get shoved about a lot during an op even just a diagnostic one. It can take a good 12 weeks to heal internally possibly more. This link describes various causes of post op pain and runs through the healing process in detail.

Hope your recover goes well, I'm 7 days po, I've been to gp twice already as pain seems to be getting worse not better, I too have constant ache in right side, she told me it was earlier days and that its abrasive surgery and they fairly push poke and prod though I felt so much better after my first lap. I'm also feeling very weepy anxious and low mood xxxx
