|I had a Emergancy Appendectomy a week ago due to a preforated appendix. I was in the hospital for three days recieving mass quantities of antibiotics to ensure that there was no infection. The problem that I am having now is expelling the surgical CO2 that was used to inflate the abdominal area. The proceedure was preformed laproscopic and I am currently in no pain. I am only able to wear Sweat pants or shorts with a tie waist band being that I am unable to wear any of my normal clothing, including my dress pants for work. I typically wear a 34 waist band and I am looking like I may have to wear a 38 just to be able to get them around my abdomin. Any information as to how I may quickly relieve this gaseous pressure is greatly appreciated. I am a Male who is 40 years old and I stand 5'10" tall.|

|Dear Ray Brown
This is a misunderstanding that co2 remains inside after laparoscopic surgery. With a day ar two co2 get absorbed after laparoscopic surgery.
After surgery due to inactivity and bed rest you might be putting weight.
During the laparoscopic surgery, C02 (Carbon Dioxide) gas is injected through a special needle (Veress needle) inserted just below the navel. This is done in order to insufflate the pelvic cavity and allow the surgeon a better view of the organs in order to perform sage surgery. After the laparoscopy, most people experience shoulder pain, ranging from mild to severe. But co2 is very fast absorbed gas so after surgery it get absorbed within few days.
Please take care of your diet and try to do some exercise.
