Days to weeks: I am assuming you are referring to the incision site on your abdomen. Technically, after a laparascopic surgery, you should be able to resume most normal day to day activities within 2-3 days. However, the incision site will require 3-4 weeks for full healing process to complete.

Few weeks: It may take few weeks for the soreness to dissapear from the area where ports were inserted.
