In brief: How old?
Depending on how old the patient is and how 'tough' they are, the recovery can take anywhere from 5 days to 3 weeks.
Kids always seem to bounce back faster than adults so long as they have adequate pain management. It's very important to make sure that the patient is getting a lot of hydration to avoid bleeding and help with pain.
