Recovery From Ovarian Cancer Surgery ?

I have a friend who just discovered she has a tumor in one of her ovaries and possibly some nodules near the left pericolic gutter, which we found out is outside the intestines on the left side.
Anyhow, the question is
Can anybody share their experience of how though is the recovery from the surgery? She knows she will have the uterus, both ovaries and this other small nodules removed, and also that they will look around to determine how much it has spread.
She is concerned how long she won't be able to move, walk, if she will be able to go to the bathroom, etc.
Can someone share their experience? It will be greatly appreciated.
