I went for laparoscopy last october for endometriosis because of a cyst on my left ovary.
The procedure went really well. Depends on the individual but in 1 week or so, you'll be up and back to normal. I went to raffles hospital so my bill was quite high : approx $15k (covered by my husbands work insurance) when the dr removed the cyst he checked if my tubes were blocked by inserting a blue dye. He basically did an all round check because I told him I wished to get pregnant. He told me that women who go for lap get more easily pregnant, so nothing to fear !
