Recovery time for cyst removal

I am tentatively scheduled for a lap cystectomy on 2/22. If all goes well and that's all that's required, does anyone have an idea of recovery time? I'm sure I'll get more details when I do pre-op, but just thought I'd gather thoughts of those of you who maybe have been through this. And what else to expect?

Recovery time for cyst removal

Do you mean laparotomy or laparoscopy? A laparotomy is when you have the larger cut across your lower abdomen. They doctors usually say that it takes about 6 weeks before you feel like your old self. Many people go back to work within 4. Personally, I went back to work after only 19 days and once after 6 days. But, I'm a quick healer. I wouldn't suggest it. I'm 3 weeks post-op and paying for it now.
I would plan on being off of work for 4 weeks if possible.
If you have a laparoscopic surgery, it takes about 1-2 weeks to go back to work.

Here there...laparscopy...I had a TAH in 2006 so know what that recovery time is. My doc said a few days with the laparoscopic surgery...I'm hoping that's all it turns out to be!
