In brief: Depends

If done via laparoscopy, probably about three weeks.
If done in an open fashion, 4-6 weeks. You must ask your surgeon for your activity release - don't start jogging or lifting without that consent. Good luck.

In brief: Depends

Was your surgery open or laparoscopic? Do you have a large incision or small ones.
Usually 6 to 8 weeks for the typical large open surgery, possibly less if laparoscopically done. Ask your surgeon.

In brief: If you had

An open operation on your abdomen, probably 4-6 weeks.
If it was laparoscopy, probably 1-2 weeks. But a lot depends on size and location of incisions, how well you have healed, and how much you plan to run. Ask your surgeon for specific recommendations.
