By the time you come home, you should be ok to take care of yourself, but if you have to care for others that will be difficult. I just had my gastric sleeve on the 28th and I have been just resting. I did an hour walk today but I think that was a little to much for my body to soon.

You’ll be fine to care for yourself

I prepared individual servings of broth and froze them. I had frozen one ounce "ice cubes" of watered down juices; and things like that ready for my first week home. I did not go upstairs for a first day home, the drive home was painful, so I camped out on the sofa/recliner - downstairs. My teen daughter was home but not involved at the time.

Be prepared - have the things you will need at hand, and be good to yourself.

I was fine by myself after being driven home from my gastric sleeve. I don’t anticipate my sleeve to RNY to be any different on the 11th once I’m discharged home.
