I have had four laps and was quite sore for 24 -36 hours after. I personally took the day off. If your job requires not much physical activity you may be ok.

I couldn't stand up without puking the next day and still needed assistance standing, sorry

Depends what they find when they get in there. I had a lap that turned into a more major surgery as I had organ binding that was separated and stage 4 endo removed from pretty much everywhere. So I was very sore for a few days and it was several weeks before I felt normal

Definitely get a few days (a week if possible) off work afterwards - you will be quite tender. It may be keyhole surgery, but they are still cutting into your abdominal muscles!

I'm a bit weird and went back to work the afternoon of my lap. But I would have liked a couple if days.

Had op Thursday afternoon, had Friday off work, could stand up normally by Sunday evening and went back to work Monday. No "extra" surgery.

I have had 2 laps just recently and would definitely recommend a week off! It all depends on what they find in there too.

I'd recomend having a few days off. Even if your incisions don't hurt much (mine were not too bad, just mild discomfort) the pain/bloated feeling from the gas they use can be really bad. I've had two, one of them I literally couldn't walk properly for about 3 days and it took a week for the bloated feeling to go

Oh no all your comments don't give much hope. I have already rescheduled it due to work. It's on a Thursday I can't really take the Friday off but.I guess I shall see. Not sure what they will find.
