One Week Bermuda Cruise Starts 21 Days Post Op



Recommended Posts

Good Evening...I have a dilemma.

I'm a travel agent and there's what we call a seminar at sea 3 weeks after I'm post op with my sleeve. It's already booked and paid for. Matter of fact I just sold 3 rooms today on that same itinerary to someone I know and I'm hoping I'll be able to avoid him and his younger crowd -- I didn't tell anyone about my surgery. It was so cheap so he just decided to ask a few of his friends to tag along once I told him that there were ports he could catch a cruise on that was within driving distance of MD/DC.

I'm scheduled for the sleeve on 10/1, the cruise is 10/21-10/28. Any ideas how I'd feel at that time? Any of you travel within your first month? Any suggestions?

I'll have a couple of seminars to attend on board and we'll be docked in Bermuda for 3 nights. I'm nervous and very glad for the break.

I felt fine in a couple days. I never had pain and took no pain meds. I am 10 days out and are on pureed stage. Other than still lacking energy, it's been great! I'm most curious about the cruise! We are frequent cruisers- but I have till nov to get ready! As you know we are going to totally have to change our mindset and remember its about having fun, being with people, not all about eating. You can do it!!

I love the chilled fruit Soups that most cruises offer! At 3 weeks I was on my way to recovery - I felt ok but tired. I think you will be fine but I maybe would order rooms service and try to stay aways from the buffet an restaurants. It would be lovely to recover lounging on the deck of a cruise ship. Just be sure to bring your Protein Powder with you.

I'm actually there to re familiarize myself with this ship -- Explorer of the Seas for a large group I have booked next year. Also I have a lot of inquires on Bermuda since the fare is dirt cheap. I planned to check out a few hotels and villas while we there but every time I put thought to it, it's looking dim. I sure hope I'm on setting myself up for failure! I'll have my hubby who's super helpful and he's fairly new in the travel biz, so it's a learning experience for us both.
