things vary. doctors vary. some people are back within a week. others within 2-3 weeks. some of us went out on disability for 6 weeks. but we were REAL sick going into the surgery...
most common: 2-4 weeks.
a lot depends on the kind of work a person does. someone with a very active job like nursing or loading trucks or stocking shelves should probably figure on a longer recovery than someone who sits at a desk and answers the phone.
good luck!!! and keep us posted!
