Has anyone had surgery for an intramuscular lipoma? What was your recovery like?

I have just been diagnosed with a large, deep intramuscular lipoma in my right deltoid muscle.  I am waiting for a referral to a specialist.  I think these kind of tumors (intramuscular) are pretty rare and especially where mine is.  I am concerned about the recovery since they are going to have to cut into the muscle to remove the tumor.  I am a legal secretary and of course, type all day, so I am trying to get some idea how long I will be out of commission (and how painful it will be after surgery).  Any feedback from your experiences would be appreciated.

Assuming you have your surgery behind you, can you please post how it went? I'm facing a similar situation and your feedback would be helpful.
