Welcome to ehealthforum,
Laparoscopy assisted vaginal hysterectomy can take 45 minutes to 1 hour time. This time limit can vary depending on the on-table view and complications (presence of adhesions, large fibroids, complicated ovarian cysts etc). Discuss in detail about the procedure and the time required for operation, hospital stay, time needed to start on oral diet after operation etc with your treating gynecologist. Be in regular follow-up with your treating gynecologist. Follow post-op instructions carefully.
Take care.
