What is Diagnostic Laparoscopy?
Diagnostic Laparoscopy, also known as exploratory Laparoscopy, is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to inspect intra-abdominal organs. Laparoscopy is used as an alternative to open surgery in some cases. It uses a camera with a scope to take a look inside your pelvic area.
Our doctors at Brundavan Women & Child Care Centre are highly trained to perform Laparoscopy.
What are the Uses of Laparoscopy?
Diagnostic Laparoscopy can diagnose whether you have conditions such as :
- Uterine Fibroids
- Examine tissue mass.
- To identify the cause of infertility.
- Pelvic infection
Laparoscopy is also used for treatments such as:
- Removal of ovarian cyst
- Removal of uterine fibroids
- Tubal ligation
How is Laparoscopy Performed?
- The procedure is performed under general anesthesia.
- The surgeon makes a tiny incision below the belly button.
- A hollow tube called a trocar or a needle is inserted into the incision.
- Carbon dioxide gas is passed through the trocar into the abdomen. The gas helps expand the area, giving the surgeon more room to work and allowing the surgeon to see the internal organs more clearly.
- A laparoscope is then placed through the trocar to see the inside of your abdomen. Multiple incisions may be made if other instruments are needed to view specific organs better.
- If you have gynecologic Laparoscopy, a dye may be injected into your cervix to view the fallopian tubes.
- After the exam, the gas, laparoscope, and instruments are removed, and the cuts are closed. You will have bandages over those areas.
Recovery After Laparoscopy?
- Generally, the healing time after Laparoscopy is shorter and also leaves smaller scars than open surgery.
- It is also common to have shoulder pain after your procedure.
Recovering at Home
- Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol.
- You can remove the bandage yourself the morning after the surgery. Steri-strips, which resemble tape (if placed), can be removed in two to three days after surgery.
- Patients can return to their work three days after surgery.
- Do not panic if your urine color is green (A blue dye might have been used to check if your fallopian tubes)
- Vaginal bleeding for one month after surgery is considered normal. Many women may not have their next menstrual cycle for 4 to 6 weeks after surgery. When your normal cycle returns, you might notice more massive bleeding and more discomfort than usual. Wait for 2 to 3 menstrual cycles before determining if Laparoscopy has helped to relieve your condition.
- Sexual activity-You can resume your sexual activity one week after surgery. However, pregnancy can still occur during recovery. If you wish to prevent pregnancy, use a contraceptive.
