For people flying back home with 3 hours or more flight -- how did you do it?

I mean did you get yourselves a wheelchair for the airport?

Did you walk around in the plane often? I am concerned about all the fatigue, the pain, I will be and how I will survive my fly back home :(

I am going with BeLite Wight scheduled for 2/16 in Juarez with Dr. Jose Rodriguez Villarreal and Dr. Elmo Aramburo

Anyone have any experience with them??

I had to fly from San Diego to Miami and then to St Thomas. After the 4th day you are pretty good actually. No problems walking around. Definitely don't need anything like a wheelchair. For me the pain was about 4 /10 and I also had my gall bladder removed at the same time which was apparently a more painful recovery than the straight sleeve surgery. Just be careful and go slow! Take a walk up and down the aisle every 30 mins or 1 hour on the plane just to keep the blood pumping. Good luck!

You should be fine. I flew into San Diego on Wednesday morning and had surgery that afternoon. I flew home on the 3rd day (Friday afternoon). At hospital Guadalajara they stayed on top of the pain meds. I never had to ask. They also gave me stockings to ensure no blood clots.

I came home to toddlers and did not need to take any meds for pain.

You will not need a wheel chair. Just pack light and take it easy!

I had gastric bypass. My flight was 3 1/2 hours plus 2 hour wait on runway when we got home due to ice. Get a wheelchair you will be tired. I was afraid to walk in the plane did not want to fall, but used had the hose on from the hospital and exercised ( moved my legs often)

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
