7-10 days: In general, i advise my patients to take 7-10 days before returning to work. Most people can control their pain without narcotic medication after 1-2 days.

Depends on cause and: With uncomplicated laparascopic gall bladder surgery you may return within a week...The level of physical activity involved in your work determines how long you need to be away from it.
