In brief: Likely more
In our hands, even with laparotomy, most are done as an outpatient.
Recovery though depends on so many factors. Motivated patients without lifting demands in their work might get back in one week. Others might be 2 or 3 weeks? Lifting is the biggest limiting factor. Good luck.
