In brief: Depends on cause and
With uncomplicated laparascopic gall bladder surgery you may return within a week.
..The level of physical activity involved in your work determines how long you need to be away from it.

In brief: 7-10 days
In general, i advise my patients to take 7-10 days before returning to work.
Most people can control their pain without narcotic medication after 1-2 days.
