Usually surgeons make you wait,6 ormore weeks between surgery. That said, I am sure there are mevericks everywhere.

@Rexcom

when i told ortho I was going to have WLS, he said "lets wait til you loose some weight".

5 months after sleeve - was down 60 lbs!! - then i successfully had knee replacement. since i weighed less, my recovery /PT went better - good luck
