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.
