Before five days, I had a laparoscopy. I am scared regarding my hard-bloated tummy. Will it go away? Is this normal?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
This operative process involves the infusion of CO2 (carbon dioxide) into the abdomen. It is needed to distend the abdominal wall for having a proper visualization. We usually expel some gas after the procedure but some portion can remain trapped inside. This can cause a bloating sensation until it gets absorbed fully. This is common and it takes a time of seven to ten days to get resolved. Please mention whether you have a good bowel movement after the operation. Regular bowel movement helps to resolve the problem. If not, take plenty of water and laxatives for having good bowel movements.
Thank you doctor,
I am taking laxatives for more than a week. Still, I do not have any relief from this bloating. Do I need to be worried?

This will get resolved with time. Try to wait for few days. Have a walk and drink plenty of fluids. Take adequate rest. Lastly, any medicine taken in this condition can cause bloating and so please wait.
