Discuss with the Dr.: Your doctor would be the best person to answer these questions. It's hard to say what the details of your surgery would be, since different doctors may approach it differently. If the iud can be easily located and removed with small incisions, then one would expect the recovery to be fairly quick and simple. If the doctor has to do a bigger incision to get to the iud, then recovery may be longer.

Many variables: This presumes that you had surgery to remove it already. If not, you need to be seen for either hysteroscopy or laparoscopy. As to recovery, either of those procedures can take a couple of weeks to recover most of the way, and about 3 months for full recovery.
