In brief: Yes

Although not a common choice.
Maybe a combined general-epidural technique if you want to minimize exposure to anesthetics.

In brief: Yes, with caution

It is an option, however both lavh and davinci surgeries require absolute non-movement for surgical precision.
Moreover, you would be awake and able to hear everything going on in the surgical suite.
