Failed Laparoscopy due to being unable to insert needle in to belly button for Gas!

I had a failed attempt with my laparoscopy and dye today due the surgeon not being able to inflate my tummy with the gas-apperently she made 3 attempts. I now have to have another GA and go through the whole procedure again only this time worrying more about the if/buts and maybes. Has anyone heard of this? I don't know if I should be annoyed that they couldn't do it the 1st time around!?

Never heard of it but would say possible!! People thing laps are run of the mill ops and hardly any complications!! My first lap, which was first ever op, left me critically ill, needing 12 pints of blood and a life saving operation!! Every operation carries risk. Better to be safe than sorry!
