In brief: Recovery time

About 2 weeks before you would return to a desk job.
No strenuous activity for about 6 weeks. After that you can do whatever you want.

In brief: 1-2 weeks

If done laparoscopically, like it should be, then you can expect 1-2 nights in the hospital.
And expect to be out of work about a week.
