In brief: 6 months

Most people return to normal activity 4-6 weeks after abdominal surgery, but complete healing of the tissues takes up to 6 months.

In brief: Variable

Most major abdominal surgery patients need about a 6 week recovery period before doing all full normal physical activities.
It depends on how difficult or long the surgery may have been, and if there are any underlying medical conditions. Can return to most light activities in 1 to 2 weeks. Staples removed in about 1 o 2 weeks of surgery.
