Brief Answer:
Moderate surgery; 2-7 days in hospital; sports in about a months time.

Detailed Answer:


It is a moderate procedure which has about a 2-7 day stay in the hospital and a complete recovery time of about 2-6 weeks. But you should be able to return to sports like golf in about a months time or lesser sir.

I hope you find my response helpful and informative.
