Quoting Man. Bear. Pig.:" They can go through your BELLY BUTTON??? Wow... If I were to do that, how long do you think I would be out of work? I have a desk job"
Yep. He warned me that he MIGHT have to do another incision. It would depend on when he actually started to know. However, the only incision he made just looks like another line in my belly button. I had it done a few months PP, so not right after a baby or anything.
If you didn't have to lift or anything you could probably go back sooner. Also, I don't think many people have as difficult time as I had. I have a uterine prolapse, and the procedure took like double the time it was supposed to. So I had a LOT of soreness and trouble with the gas they use to sort of inflate the area. Like, I couldn't lay down because it felt like the gas was pushing on my lungs and I couldn't breathe. With the vicodin it wasn't nearly as bad though, lol.
Most people can return to work within a few days. With a desk job I probably could have within about 3 days or so. It really took me about a week however to feel pretty good, but again, few people seem to have as much trouble as I did.
