Laparoscopic Removal

Side Effects of Laparoscopic Removal

As with any surgery, there are risks and side effects associated with laparoscopic removal surgeries, including bleeding or hernia at the incision site(s), infection, internal bleeding, injuries to internal organs or complications related to the use of general anesthesia (drugs used to put the patient to sleep and block pain). Other common side effects include shoulder pain from any carbon dioxide remaining in the abdomen, which should recede with time, and soreness, for which pain relievers may be prescribed.

You should notify your doctor if, following surgery, you have fever and/or chills; redness, bleeding or swelling at the incision site; increased pain around the incision site; vomiting; or difficult urinating.
