In brief: Energy
It depends on the surgery and your energy level and fitness level prior to the procedure.
Certainly the better off you were prior to the surgery the faster you usually bounce back when it is done, but all surgeries are different.

In brief: Varies
This depends on how in shape you are preop, the extent of the surgery, the extent of blood loss and if any complication, your nutritional status, your age, and what medication you are on as well as if you are able to or did you start exercise/rehab post op.
It also depends on any other medical conditions you may have.Like renal disease, anemia of chronic disease, depression, etc..
