Hi,

I’m new and I’m have revision from sleeve to bypass upon approval. Can you share how soon you think you went back to work?

I can't say about a revision. However, as a first-time Bypasser I originally took two weeks off (from a desk job). I went back on Monday of the third week and was so exhausted I left at noon and took another week off.

I was a revision sleeve to bypass. For the bypass I took 3 weeks off work (though my job is fairly active - aged care).

Had a sleeve. I have a job with lifting and ladders and driving etc. I took a month. Glad I did.

I had the sleeve and only took a week. Big mistake. My energy levels were shocking. I work from home now (since covid) so I scheduled a daily rest between 12pm and 1.30pm. It made the world of difference.

I am 23 days post surgery and still get moments of exhaustion.

Took six weeks off. I wouldn't have had the energy or wherewithal to be at work until weeks 4-5. I'm in week 8 now, and I've been back to work for a week and a half. I'm DONE at 5 pm.

I had a sleeve. Took 3 weeks off of work-I’m a nurse, but in a clinic so more of a desk type job. I could have gone back after 2 weeks.

I had a revision on 1/11 and I am going back on 2/1 , so 3 weeks with no lifting required job. I wanted 2 but Md said no, and I'm glad because I still get tired.
