laparoscopic liver resection - recovery time?
Trying to bump this - Does anyone have any experience with this kind of surgery? My surgery is coming up in about 2 weeks & I'd love to know what to expect. Any advise would be appreciated.
I'm new on here. I'm having laparoscopic liver resection for a 6cm adenoma in about 3 weeks (left lateral lobe). I can't find any information as to how long it takes to recover from the surgery..All going well, I've been told the recovery time is much better than an 'open' surgery..but just how long is what I really would like to know.
Is there anyone who has had laparoscopic surgery for an adenoma who could let me know: How long out of work etc? How does it feel? Anyone have any advice for hospital stay & recovery. I'd really appreciate any advice. Thanks!
