How long should bloating last for following keyhole surgery to remove ovarian cyst? And are there any ways to reduce the bloating?

In brief: No

Your "bloating" most likely is due to retained gas inside the intra-abdominal cavity and not due to typical "gas pains".
This retained gas should be expected to get reabsorbed within the next 24-48 hours following surgery.
