In brief: 4 to 6 weeks

After bladder support surgery, the recovery is generally considered complete after about 6 months.
But, most surgeons recommend no lifting over 10 to 15 pounds for the first six weeks and careful increases in activity until about 6 months passes. It takes about a month to get half the strength back in the tissue operated on, and about 6 months to get full strength.
