Most people who have surgery will go home the same day and recuperate at home. Appendicitis or acute gallbladder surgery may require an overnight stay in the hospital before being released. Light activity can usually be resumed after 2 weeks, while more strenuous physical exertion will need to wait for 4-6 weeks after your surgery. This helps prevent a hernia from occurring and allows for greater success with the surgery.
Bruising and swelling is expected around the incisions and overall in the abdominal area.
Steri-strips are placed over the incisions and typically remain until the post-operative appointment.
Since a common cause of abdominal disorders are tied to obesity and straining, maintaining a healthy weight and healthy diet with good eating habits is a valuable preventative measure.
Sometimes. If your abdominal pain is due to musculoskeletal issues such as a strained muscle, then it will go away over time. However, abdominal pain that has not gone away or gotten better in a few days, needs to be evaluated by your doctor to better identify the cause of the persistent abdominal pain.
Sometimes. Typically, ulcers do reoccur from time to time. But treating them with the proper medicines and changes in your diet will work together to help ulcers from becoming worse or a surgical emergency.
