How long did it take to return back to work? Dr. Alexander here in Dallas said I could return to work in a week.. I work in the office setting

Everybody is different. I went back after two weeks. One week seems a bit tight.

Thank you! I am excited, but scared as well. However the surgeon has been doing this for over 30 years.

You will do great. Grey hair in a surgeon is awesome.

Had my surgery, age 71, on a Thursday home on Friday and was ready to return to work on Monday. Actually took a week off to be on the safe side. But on Monday took dog to Vet and after that went grocery shopping. For me the faster I return to work (office work sitting all day) I can't do as much damage. I feel I'll do more damage at home finding things I shouldn't be doing.

I’m 53, had my sleeve done on 10/5. Mine hurts if I swallow to much at one time...tiny sips only and Water level seems to not go down. Keep going, your pouch will get used to it and stop hurting!

I was 51 when I had my RNY, and although I have had some significant complications (marginal ulcer & marked hypotension,) I still think it is the best of all my 14 surgeries. (Yes, 14-cosmetic, orthopedic, female, etc.) I just wish I had my RNY 25 years ago! All that wasted time being unhappy about my body!
