Discuss with the Dr.
Your doctor would be the best person to answer these questions.
It's hard to say what the details of your surgery would be, since different doctors may approach it differently. If the iud can be easily located and removed with small incisions, then one would expect the recovery to be fairly quick and simple. If the doctor has to do a bigger incision
to get to the iud, then recovery may be longer.
