In brief: Depends

Depends on how extensive the procedure and who is doing it.
In my patients they have sponge in their nose overnight. That sponge is removed the next morning and they can go about their regular activities. Usually it takes a few days to feel "normal." i ask them not to engage in any activities that raise their blood pressure in the first week including sexual relations.

In brief: About a few weeks

With the new nasopore packs after sinus and or polyp surgery, the healing of the sinus cavities amazingly heal within 1-2 weeks

In brief: Recovery time varies

Recover time will vary depending on many factors including age, general health of the patient, infection control, smoker or not, blood sugar control, the exact type of procedure, and post-operative and follow up care.
Discuss it with your surgeon and get their opinion as to what they feel is a reasonable recovery time for you.

In brief: Weeks

Most people who have extensive polyp removal take 5-7 days off work, and avoid strenuous activity for 2 weeks.
