It depends if it is being done by laparoscopy or open surgery. Laparoscopy would be a week or two. Open surgery 4-6 weeks.

Hi Anon
I had cysts removed last March and it took me about 3 days to recover. Had my stitches out after a week and by then I was rearing to go again. First couple of days are uncomfortable because of the cuts on my tummy but once I got used to sitting up carefully, it was plain sailing. The cuts are fairly small, so heal quickly too! Hope this helps.
