We are sorry to hear of the discomfort your partner is experiencing post Laparoscopy. There are two symptoms that you have queried: Breathlessness and Abdominal Pain.
The breathlessness that you describe could be due to a variety of causes and the best course of action would be to return to your Consultant/Surgeon, as soon as you can, to discuss possible causes.
In regards to the abdominal pain your wife is still experiencing after a month, this is not normally due to the recovery process following a Laparoscopy, as the healing process with Keyhole surgery is less traumatic for the human body (smaller incisions, etc.) than normal surgery and so there is usually less pain and quicker healing. Therefore we would suggest that your wife also discusses this issue with either her Consultant or GP.
