Just had a laparotomy for an ectopic pregnancy. Was supposed to be laparoscopic, but turned out it couldn't be done that way for whatever reason.
Any suggestions for sleeping more comfortably? Diet? What to do when sneezing? Coughing? Is shapewear recommended to help with the pressure? How long does ones usually wait until getting back into sports (hockey? non contact).
