  5. Hello!! I'm new to this site. In 2008 ,I had the lap band, lost some weight and have gained it back. I am having a revision to the sleeve and was wondering what is the downtime. I work in a clinic , where I walk a lot and have to pick up things up to 30 lbs. I was thinking of two weeks off should be more than enough. Thoughts please, thanks in advance!!
  6. Be careful with that, one month I got off 10 lbs and my Doc told me the insurance company may look at it as you can do it on your own. I would wait to drop the most after the final visit. My 6 months was a perfect example of what I alway do, lose then gain.

    Time off post op

    I had to go back because I was having really bad reflux and needed an EGD. That got the ball rolling and I told them I would like to have the band removed and get the sleeve. We were able to start the process.
