Thanks. Do you know how you feel after? Like how much pain you're in?

I was pretty sore for a couple of days, luckily the incisions are tiny. The gas was most uncomfortable, as the docs inflate your belly. The gas moves up and you feel it in your chest and clavical. A heating pad helps with that.

I'm trying to look at my insurance to see how much I would owe out of pocket but I'm not finding anything that just has to do with laparoscopy it brings up gallbladder laparoscopy and tube removal

It is usually an outpatient procedure.  You can call and have the insurance company look to see what your deductible or co-pay will be.

I have had 3 of these.  You have to get up and move or the gas will rise into your shoulders and it is incredibly painful.  I was only out of work for a week with each of these surgeries.  I was a little sore the first day or two and then mostly discomfort while I healed.  I had a lot of cauterization done during all 3 of my surgeries along with scar tissue removal
