If one has determined to undergo the surgery then before the surgery could take place the surgeon will have the patient undergo certain laboratory tests. This is a standard procedure to determine the safety and health condition of the patient before undergoing the procedure. The patient has to be open to the doctor and let him know if he or she is taking medications. Adjustments or total cessation from drugs might be demanded by the doctor since it could result to adverse effects. Certain precautions have to be taken and there would arise certain restriction to be followed for the surgery to be performed positively.
Likewise, after the surgery the patient will be clinically taken care so as to not get infected and would be observed if the surgery hasn’t got any adverse effect on the body to be on the safer end. The patient will have a bandage on his or her abdominal area and extends just around the pelvic area where the incision was made. In some cases, a tube will be placed to prevent the accumulation of fluids inside. Depending on the surgical procedure, the patient might return to the doctor to have the stitches removed but for less invasive ones, the sutures used will probably be those that will dissolve and fade away in time so that they don’t have to visit the doctor again.
Recovery would take at least few days as the areas would feel weak and for the first week, you will definitely not be able to stand up or move comfortably. Do not stretch your body as yet or give pressure on the abdomen by lifting anything heavy or perform anything that the doctor did not say since it could result to bleeding and problems. The overall recovery can reach to a month. Any strenuous activities should be avoided and light exercises might be done after 3 weeks. It all depends on the kind of procedure done and how well you recover.
