Laparoscopic Surgery for Chronic Pelvic Pain

What If Something Is Found During the Laparoscopy?

If your doctor finds something abnormal during your laparoscopy, the surgery will then continue. Occasionally, two or three small incisions may need to be made just below the navel for other instruments. The specific method used to remove the problem will be based on what is found, its size, and location. If endometriosis is seen during the laparoscopic surgery, your doctor will remove it with scissors, a laser, or electricity. These methods of removal are painless. If adhesions are found, they may be cut with scissors or other instruments.
 

Finishing the Laparoscopy for Chronic Pelvic Pain

When the laparoscopic surgery is complete, the air and instruments are removed. The incisions are then closed with stitches or skin staples and covered with a bandage. These stitches will be absorbed by your body over time, usually in two to four weeks.
