During any abdominal surgery, it is possible that damage to your organs can occur. Organs that may be damaged include the intestines, bladder, ureters, ovaries, fallopian tubes or the uterus. If any injury does occur, the treatment options will vary depending on the damage. In most cases, these injuries are obvious, and repaired if necessary. They usually heal without a problem. If they do not heal, another surgery may be needed.
Sometimes an injury to an organ may not appear at the time of the operation, but shows up later. In these cases, another surgery may be needed to repair the problem.
