I was sleeved on 23rd jan. My recovery is fast. I dont feel weak or tired..started office for few hrs.

following doc's orders about walking,having liquids.< /p>

My husband is travelling and I want to go with him.Its an 8 hr journey by road. It is advisable.

I think the biggest issue is sitting for so long (dont' wan't to risk blood clots so close to surgery), as long as you take breaks so you can walk around a bit, I don't see why it would be a problem. A medical professional may differ. Worst case, call your surgeons office, I'm sure they can advise.

Yeah just make sure that you are able to move around a bit. Also a big thing is PREPARE beforetime a plan of what you will be able to eat, bring stuff with you or know where you will be able to get whatever is on your list of foods because it is easy to screw up when you travel and not be as careful so make sure to prepare your menu and have a plan! Enjoy your time with your hubby! Be safe!

I agree with AllisonKara - it's really up to your surgeon. I know that my surgeon did not want me traveling that far from home for a minimum of 6 weeks.

As said before, best to consult your surgeon. I was not allowed to travel at all for 6 weeks. Hope it works out for you.

A while back there was, IMHO, a really good thread on traveling and helpful hints/tips and experiences. You can try searching for it (and I do hope Karma comes round for you in the best of ways)!

      OMG! My time is quickly approaching! I can't believe in 5 days, my life will be changed forever (for the better!). I have thought about this surgery for years, but kept telling myself I didn't need it. Now that I can view it as a tool and not a solution, I realize I do need this tool. This tool will not only help me physically, but mentally as well!

      Getting close - 196 lbs as of this week.  Goal is 195.  Actually, I'm thinking of adjusting my goal.  I'd like to get down to 185 to get rid of this scraggly belly jiggle, then try to build back up to 200 with muscle instead.

      I’m a complete novice on forums but I think my experience I’ve had so far following a gastric balloon insertion will be interesting to someone…
      I had my obera 365 inserted on 31/08/21.
