What is the typical recovery time after endometriosis resection?

After any surgery, patients require some time to recover. However, the amount of time varies based on the patient’s overall health.

The length of the recovery after endometriosis resection is essentially influenced by two factors: your general health and the type of surgery you had. The recovery depends mainly on how the surgery was performed; open surgeries require a much longer recovery time than laparoscopic interventions. The recovery period can vary from 1 to 8 weeks.

The shortest recovery is associated with laparoscopic surgery which enables patients to turn back to their daily routine in only a week.
