How soon can I go back to work after my sleeve surgery? I'm freaking out because I am getting sleeved on a Saturday and have to return to work two mondays from there so basically I only will have 9 days off is that enough?

Someone in my support group was sleeved on a Monday and returned the next Monday. Her job was at a desk I'm pretty sure though but I hope this helps!

It depends on how physical or sedentary your job is, as well as how you recover.

I had a partially active, partially sedentary job as a nurse supervisor at a hospital when I was sleeved. I took two weeks off, but could've gotten away with returning after a week since my recovery was uncomplicated.

I'm a desk jockey who can work from home when I need or want to, but -- Surgery was Tuesday, discharged Wednesday around 1 pm. Worked full day from home on Friday. Went into the office and did a full office day on Monday. Really depends on you, how you deal with pain (if you have any) and your work.

My husband's cousin is a surgical tech and took 4 days off work. Her husband took a week but he has a more physical job. Everyone recovers and reacts differently. I plan to take at least a week, just in case.

      How are you guys how are you all a little bit about me my name is Cici I had my bariatric sleeve on July 27, 2021 and six days postop currently, I have been dealing with a bit of anxiety a little depression and it’s something that no one really talks about.
      I would love followers and to follow more people throughout this journey because I’m pretty much alone I have a freak out at least once every two hours I know I did the right thing but sometimes I feel like I didn’t I also know this too shall pass and by this time next year it won’t be tears of sadness I’ll be having tears of joy so please follow me on my journey and I will do the same😍
      I would love to share some of the things that I have discovered after surgery that no one talks about

      How's everyone doing? I'm still fighting insurance company over plastics.
      Many changes at work are coming up. It's very stressful but there are also some opportunities involved, both in regards to personal development and promotion.

        I didn't think insurance was even possible for plastics? I figured it would all be out of pocket?
