(it is usually more than one)
Sometimes a person goes in for laparoscopic surgery
and ends up getting a laparotomy (open surgery
) when the small incisions are just too small for them to work. That requires an at-home recovery of about
six weeks and a longer hospital stay.
I had a laparotomy, but from
what I've seen, the majority of the ladies here that had laparoscopic surgery required more than 3-4 days at home. Hopefully more will respond to you soon.
