In brief: Day(s)

When performed laparoscopically, many people can go home in 1-2 days; if the appendix was ruptured, the hospital stay is often 3-4 days.
When performed via the open technique, this length of stay is almost-doubled.

In brief: Depends

If not complicated, not ruptured and a healthy patient - six hours to a day.
