Depends: Minor pains mostly around the incisions will take a few weeks to resolve. Minor internal cramping and presurre discomforts sometimes associated with eating also resolves over a week or so. Severe internal pain needs to be evaluated by your surgeon. Contact your surgeon to ask questions.

Still early post op: Even though it was laparoscopic, you still had major surgery. It is not unusual to still have some pain this soon after surgery. If its severe or increasing, call your surgeon. The healing process takes about 12 weeks to be complete, though after the first few weeks most patients feel almost back to normal.
