In brief: A loaded question..

It is a rather simple but relatively loaded question.
..Typical recovery would be around 1-2 wks..The ability of the person to heal, the complexity of the surgery/how extensive, comorbid illness such as diabetes/medication use etc..Can influence healing/recovery etc...If u are generally healthy, u may feel quite well after a week..Consult your doc..Ask lots of questions..Good luck.
