I'm scheduling surgery to have a golfball sized cyst removed by laparoscopy from my right ovary. How long should I plan to be off of work?

In brief: Depends.

Good planning! It depends on the physical requirements of your job.
Be sure to ask the surgeon. You can leave a message at his office about it and the staff can ask and then relay the information to you. Remember, there are no guarantees, you may feel better sooner than others, or you may have complicating factors that change this time period. Or the surgery may be more involved than expected
