Hi Ladies;Can any of you that has experienced a laproscopy tell me an estimate of how long your stomach was extremely painful to the touch, as in, don't even press on it, more toward the incision area, but definitely middle section of the tummy. Just trying to get a ballpark figure. I had the procedure done on Wednesday. Talk about sore!!!
I'm sure, also, if they have to cut deep into fat layers, and no, I'm not making a joke, but I have a big tummy since I had my child 16 years ago. No matter how much weight I lose, it will get smaller, but there is a hang over of fat that never goes away. It would take plastic surgery for a flat stomach. My doc gave instructions that I'm to lift no heavier than a 1/2 gallon of milk for two weeks, and I've been good about that. I figured I'd just ask and see if any of you remember the recovery time of the tummy itself.
