    Default Realities of a laproscopy

    I'm considering a laparoscopy but was wonder what the prior deal with it is. Ie out of pocket expenses, pain, recovery time and if you thought it was worth it

    Thanks for any replies

    Hi there! I had a lap last September here in Melbourne. I also had ovarian drilling for PCOS and Endo removed plus a D&C and a dye test... hooray! So that was three incisions. They did a LOT of work down there...
    I have private health so there wasnt much out of pocket... only about $100 from memory?!
    I didnt realise how invasive it was... but it really was, and it knocked me around a fair bit. I had my surgery first thing in the morning, first on the list, but I was the last out at night in recovery as I was just so out of it. Got home and threw up a lot, and husband had to help me move, go to the toilet... You sort of lose all core strength so it was hard to sit up. I wasnt ready for any of that, and I was out of action for a week. In bed for about 6 days. But it was about 2 weeks before i felt normal. Having said that, I am glad I had it all done as the doctor said my uterus was now in the best shape it had been in......
    Hope that helps!!
