The gas used to inflate the abdominal cavity during the procedure can lead to complications if it enters a blood vessel. It's important to be attentive to your body during the recovery phase. Make a note of any side effects you may be experiencing and discuss them with your doctor.

  • serious abdominal pain
  • prolonged nausea and vomiting
  • fever of 101°F or higher
  • pus or significant bleeding at your incision site
  • pain during urination or bowel movements

The outcomes of these procedures are typically positive. This technology enables the surgeon to easily visualize and diagnose many issues. Additionally, the recovery time is shorter in comparison to open surgery.
