Tumor/Cyst removal for toddler

My daughter (3) will be undergoing surgery next week to remove what was originally referred to as a tumor, and sometimes a cyst.

Any suggestions on what to expect? Most doctors we've talked to have said to expect around a week in hospital, another 2-6 weeks of recovering before she starts to feel like herself. Her surgeon says 2-3 days in hospital, and she can be back to daycare and going to the gym within 5 days of the surgery. I'm not sure who to believe.

Also, anything we should know in advance in terms of recovery, wound care, what to expect, hair (yes, I know, completely not important in the scheme of things!), etc, would be helpful.
