Discharge Instructions for Laparoscopic surgery
You and your doctor decided on laparoscopic treatment for you. During your procedure, the doctor made small incisions in your abdomen and used surgical instruments to remove or treat the diseased tissue. Your incisions and the area around them may be sore or tender. You may also feel pain in your upper back or shoulders. This is from the gas used to enlarge your abdomen to allow your doctor to see and treat the endometriosis. This pain usually goes away within a day or two.
