It depends.: Not all hernia surgeries are alike: where was the hernia? Was mesh used for the repair? Was the operation performed via minimally invasive surgery? What is the health of the patient? What are you defining as 'healing': return to work? Pain-free? Sports? Because of all these factors, the answer could be "weeks-to-months". This question is best answered by the hernia surgeon who did the case.
