In brief: 1 to 2 weeks

A prophylactic oophorectomy done by minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery should require no more than 1 to 2 weeks before you can be back to your normal energy levels and most normal activities.
Heavy lifting, abdominal exercises, and sex are the only activities that should be deferred for 4 to 6 weeks.
