In brief: A few weeks....

Depending on the type of surgery you had.
Patients undergoing laparoscopic surgery have shorter stays and faster recoveries than those who have traditional open surgery. The average length of stay in the hospital ranges from 3-7 days. Factors such as overall health before the surgery, nutritional status and disease severity predict outcomes. The stronger you are going in the faster you recover!
