How long to return to work after ovarian cyst removal?

Have an ovarian 7 cm blood filled endometrioma that needs to be removed. Doctor says it's about a 2 week recovery but that's assuming for someone who works a desk job...He said it would be laparoscopic but could always be converted to an open procedure if necessary.

As nurses we do heavy lifting and I'm concerned that 2 weeks is not sufficient time to recover for that.

Any nurses out there have this procedure done? How long did it take you to heal and return to work?

thank you

And how painful was it?
