I went public health and my surgery was completely free. Didnt pay a cent for it. Plus my lap was classed as day surgery so went in at 7am and had my lap at 9am and went home at 3pm. Had a follow up with my specialist week after lap to get stitches removed. My surgery went for 2 and a half hours. I had a d&c done at the same time to clear out some endo in my uterus and he checked my tubes and ovaries. Thats when he discovered my right 1 was destroyed. I really hope you dont have it. But it is worth bringing it up with your fx. Good luck.

Lollie how long were waiting to go public health? I was also wondering if you have to wait anytime before you start TTC again after the op?

I had endo diagnosed and removed after about 6 months of TTC. I had normal periods but very painful ovulation with bloating, cramping, sharp pain. My OB/GYN did the surgery and his fee was only $990 - my private health insurance covered the hospital fee (day surgery), Medicare covered most of the anesthetist. I can't remember who covered the OB fee but I'm sure I got some back for that. I'm so glad I have PHI, I only had to wait a few weeks for the surgery.
My endo wasn't too bad (had one patch in the pouch of Douglas and one on a tube) but apparently the location is what made it so painful.
My OB said I could start TTC the next day if I was up to it (hell no lol!) and we fell pregnant 3 months later naturally. I miscarried that pregnancy but fell again 3 months after that - I now have a gorgeous 7 month old DD.

I waited 3 months before I got in and had my surgery. My specialist said to wait 3 months after the surgery to make sure all has healed properly. So we started ttc this year January and still no bfp.
