The Duration Of Healing After Ectopic Pregnancy Surgery?
evening … I want to ask, 5 days ago I just had a ket (ectopic) surgery. and the doctor said my right fallopian tube could still be saved and just stitched it up. my question is when the stitches will disappear the pain? then how to find out the results of the operation is clean or not ,? thanks.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. KET or disturbed ectopic pregnancy is a condition where pregnancy occurs but outside the uterus. This is a problem because in addition to the uterus, other body parts are not designed to expand so much following the growth of the fetus and cannot provide the nutrients the fetus needs so that in the end, ectopic pregnancy must be stopped and operated on.
This condition is unknown cause but among the factors that increase the risk of occurrence is the mother aged 35 years or more when pregnant, has the habit of smoking or frequently smoking cigarette smoke, having recurrent miscarriages, having had previous ectopic pregnancy and using a type of spiral contraception.
Regarding your question, the pain felt after KET surgery can last up to 7-10 days, although not a few also the pain subsides within a few days. But if the pain lasts longer than that, or the pain is very unbearable or accompanied by other symptoms such as bleeding, unusual vaginal discharge, etc., you should immediately check your condition to the doctor who previously treated you for further evaluation. For subsequent questions regarding the results of the surgery, you must control at the same doctor, to be seen either directly using an instrument called a speculum to open the vagina, or using the ultrasound method. So if you have planned control, you should come at the scheduled time and if it is not scheduled, but you feel there are complaints or you still have something to ask, you should keep coming back.
Meanwhile, there is no need to worry too much, get enough rest, take medication regularly, compress the stomach with warm compresses, and avoid strenuous activities first. So, hopefully answering your question.
