In brief: 5 to 7 days
As a minimally invasive thyroid/parathyroid surgeon, my patients routinely leave 4 to 6 hours after surgery talking, walking and eating without a drain and usually with a 1 inch incision.
They usually go back to work 5-7 days later.

In brief: Minimal
Most parathyroidectomies by experienced surgeons are done through small incisions in the neck and as an outpatient.
Pain is minimal and recovery is short.
