In brief: Depends
Many patients are treated with minimally invasive techquies that have a very short recovery - hours to 2 days.
Other patients require open surgery that may take weeks to recover from. A typical bypass patient has hospital stay 3 -5 days. Your surgeon will remove staples or stitches from the incisions, usually about 7 to 14 days.
