Post subject: Op on Friday quick question

I believe that would still count as laparoscopic Shelly. Open would be when they made an incision large enough to expose the whole area they are working and get fingers right in there. Laparoscopic involves the surgeon inserting his instruments and a tiny camera to see what he is doing but not actually to have his hands in there directly.
I know I have replied after you've actually had the op but I hope I've cleared the question up and not confused anyone.
