I've been told by my consultant I need a Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy which possibly includes lasering or removing endometriosis/cysts/fibroids if they find any. I'm happy with everything that was explained to me. My question is he said there is a 1 in 1000 risk of death for this procedure, I'm wondering is that a high mortality rate or a low one? I can't find anything useful on search engines. Does anyone have any ideas? :\

All I can say is it is a pretty straightforward op. Hope someone wiser comes along.

I've had this done. I survived grin
Statistics like that can be misinterpreted, all ops under general anaesthetic run the risk of death but it's highly unlikely you will succumb while they are rummaging round your reproductive bits. If I were you I would read up on interpretation of statistics sooner than Will I Die When having A Laparascopy, should send you to sleep anyway!
Good luck with the procedure, it will be worth it!

Lol. That made me laugh out loud. I'm not scared I don't think, just horribly intrigued. My husband keeps laughing because I'm "going to be flat on my back with my legs in the air while they probe about". Hmmmm.... good sense of humour. I don't really care, because it'll be well worth it if it helps us conceive smile
