Hello Jeanine Buck. It varies from person to person. I had a lap band taken out and sleeved on 2/23...15 days ago. I had surgery on Tuesday, overnight in hospital. Went home the next day 250 miles way. Went to work in my home office on Thursday. The day I woke up in the hospital from surgery I was uncomfortable from gas they used during surgery. I was able to burp almost all of the gas out before leaving the hospital. I drank alot of Water and walked lot that first day. I have had no pain since. I hope you have as uneventful a recovery as I had. This is not the case with everyone. You will be fine and will not regret it!
