Hello everyone. I have a question. How much time do I have to take off of work after getting gastric bypass?

This is highly variable depending on what type of job you do.

Do you work from home? Are you an office worker? Are you required to walk or stand for long periods of time? Do you need to lift more than ten pounds at your job? Do you manage others or work in a high stress environment?

All of these can impact how much time you may need.

The best advice I can think of is to take as much time off as you can financially afford, within the guidelines your surgeon gives you.

I work at a assisted living facility helping the residents with their personal care. So I'm guessing I need a lot of time off. Thank you for your response.
