I had it done several years ago, so the exact recovery time is a bit sketchy. Mine was doen laporoscopically. There were 4 tiny incisions. It was painful, but as I recall, I was up and around within 3-4 days. It still hurt, but I could function. It really is not a huge deal, in comparison with a resection anyway! I wouldn't worry too much about it. I'd worry more about your gastro drs!
