Hi all. So I am getting very close to getting my pre-op appointment scheduled and then a surgery date, but problem is I am going on a vacation end of January '23 and it will be to theme parks. I am figuring I will be only 10-13 weeks out from my surgery and I am concerned that I will not be able to ride roller coasters. They really whip you around and can feel it in the tummy so I am concerned about a leak. Has anyone gone to a theme park after surgery or had your dr tell you how long to avoid an activity like that after surgery? I will definitely be speaking with the surgeon about this, but since that is a few weeks away, I figured I 'd see if anyone on here has had any experience with this. Thanks!

I would definitely still ask your surgeon but I’m thinking they are going to say you are fine. I was only given restrictions in terms of lifting and then exercise but I was cleared for everything before ten weeks. Of course I had no reason to ask about roller coasters so better to ask just to be certain.

Ya I definitely will. I am getting so antsy and worried. ready, but not for this surgery. How long was it before you were cleared for any weight lifting type exercise?

It’s been a year and a half so I can’t remember for certain but I’m 99% sure it was less than two and a half months before I was cleared for strenuous exercise. I’m hoping someone who had their surgery more recently will weigh in and let you know for sure.

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
