In brief: Laparoscopically?

If performed laparoscopically, you typically are out of the hospital in a couple of days and back to work in 1-2 weeks.
If done the old fashioned way with the big incision, expect much longer.

In brief: Varies

Recover time will vary depending on many factors including age, general health of the patient, infection control, blood sugar control, the exact type of procedure, and post-operative and follow up care.
