As Lilliputiana mentioned, it's a really good idea to get a second opinion about this, or any other, surgery.
Your response to the surgery will depend on many factors, including the method being used (laparoscopic vs open incision, for example). I had it done with a full open incision, and it took a while to heal. Please make sure that you ask all the questions and are fully informed on appropriate diet before and after surgery, what pain killers to use, side-effects of those pain killers (and how to deal with those), appropriate activity levels, and your surgeon's opinion on what your recovery period might be like.
Good luck, and hope you're feeling better soon!
