Cost depends upon many factors and if you want to do it in India, it would cost around Rs 2-2.5 lakhs Indian rupee, which is a rough estimate.

Recovery would be gradual. You will be able to do routine things in 2 weeks and but need to take the things little easier in first 6 wks.

Let me know if you have more concerns.
