It can.  Lots of women have surgery during pregnancy; in this forum and the maternal health forum you often see stories of having a cyst removed or a tube or whatever, and the baby just slept right through it.

Really , well that is good to know, by me having irregular cycles I was curious, my lap is on the 18th, but there is a small chance that I may be preg. I won't know for a few weeks or so. But I have waited so long for my surgery, I hate to have to put it off.

They will give you a pregnancy test at your pre-op appt.
Make sure you tell them you are actively TTC.
