How can I calculate my BMI?

When do I get discharged from the hospital and resume the routine activities?

The patient can be discharged on the second day after the surgery depending upon the status of the patient. Some patients go after 3 days and some with other medical ailments may need few more days. The normal routine work can resumed after 7 days of surgery.

Are there any post surgery scars?

The scars are minimal and almost invisible in patients with good healing capacity of the body. Nowadays, we use absorbable sutures which do not even require suture removal.

Is pregnancy possible after this surgery?

Yes, pregnancy is possible even after the surgery but it is advisable to wait for at least one year for it. As by then, the body will not be in a state to provide proper nutrition to the body to carry a healthy fetus. Still it’s better to consult with your surgeon as the gynecologist before taking any decision.
