ibelong2me said everyone has different experiences, but it seems to be rounded off to about two weeks of recovery down time.
Everyone is different but 2 weeks seems to be too much. My doctor said the more fit you are, the faster you'll heal. He also recommended talking long walks as soon as you're able.
So I took a 45-minute walk the day after the surgery and drove to the office for an hour or so.
I continued with daily long walks and it helped at lot. Three days later I had tickets to the opera and found I was able to sit through a 4 and a half hour performance of Wagner's Lohengrin
without too much fidgeting.
Try to be as active as your body will let you (without straining yourself of course) and you should be back to work within a few days.
