    I did my laparascopy at TMC too. But it was a bad experience. The surgery took longer than expected, about 4 hours. I was quite sensitive to the GA. When I was about to regain conscious, I know I was puking non stop. The nurses were busy catching my puke. The next day i still feel nausea and every time i want to puke my wound hurt like mad. Btw i had 4 incisions. The doctor had to give me a jab on my butt to stop the vomitting. I was given 4 weeks of HL. It took me 3 weeks to feel slightly better. Its really true that we should not carry heavy things. I remember i carried a bag of dumpling for about 5 seconds, it feel like lighting stuck my wound. From then, i really try to be careful. Gynae asked me to rest for 6 months before TTC. I have been trying for 3 months for still no good news yet. Keep telling myself to stay positive.

    sorry for your bad experience.
    i felt the nausea too but i suspect its because lower abdomen was still quite bloated after surgery.

    anyone knows if it is ok to exercise 1 month after surgery?

    i am gaining a lot of holiday weight :p

    Yea my SIL also said the same thing, during the procedure, they actually pump alot of gas into the stomach, which cuase the bloatedness. I really take things slowly.. I din even dare to chase after the bus when i am back to work.. haha

    wow....u have a lot of cash to pay the bill hehe...
    i think u will feel like lying down.
    some people feel painful after op, some feel discomfort.

    lying down helps to a certain extent.
