Few wks: Most of the time 30 to 60 mnt ( less than hr ) may take longer with adhesions and obscured anatomy, uncomplicated case after surgery will be able to function in few days , complete healing in 3 wks.

Not sure: What you are asking. Most internal intra-peritoneal surgical surfaces heal within a week of laparoscopic surgery. Deep fascia tissue takes a few weeks to get strong enough to do heavy work or exercises.
