Your recovery time depends on the type of surgery you had. If you had laparoscopic surgery, you will probably be able to return to work or a normal routine 1 to 3 weeks after surgery. If you had an open surgery, it may take 2 to 4 weeks. If your appendix ruptured, you may have a drain in your incision.
If the appendix is operated upon promptly, most patients can go home within 24 hours. With open or complicated surgery â€“ for example, if you have peritonitis â€“ it may take up to a week before you're well enough to go home. For the first few days after the operation you're likely to experience some pain and bruising.
