Health Tip: Appendectomy
Laparoscopic surgery uses several small incisions, usually leading to few complications and a short recovery time. A laparotomy uses a single incision in your lower right abdomen.
Post-surgery, doctors recommend that you limit physical activity for two weeks after a laparotomy and 3-5 days after laparoscopic surgery. Most patients don't need to make changes to their diet, exercise or lifestyle after recovery.
