Shortness of breath a week after laparoscopy surgery

Posted , 3 users are following.

i had a laparoscopy surgery 8 days ago but still have shortness of breath! has anyone else had this issue? My doctor wanted me to go in and get tested for a blood clot in my lung so i did last night and it came back clear. The shortness of breath is so uncomfortable but not painful. I am just hoping someone might have some insight or experience with this.

    Not a clue, Rebecca. This is terrible. Did they find endo and, if yes, where was it?

      As Angie points out, that gas that they pumped into you (to help separate organs & make it easier to see & work on the inside) should be gone by now. Whoever did the lap needs to be chasing this down. I've had 5 abdominal surgeries (not all endo related) and have never had this problem -- and i've got bad lungs.
