How much time did you take off (or wish you did) to recover from sleeve surgery?
I had the Lap Band back in 2007 (removed in 2011) and it was a relatively easy recovery for me. I took two weeks off but honestly felt I could have gone back to work in just a few days. I know this procedure (VSG) is more invasive and a lot of folks have reported they were very tired and weak due to the lack of calories and liquids the first two weeks. How much time did you take off and was it enough? What do you think is the ideal amount of time to take off for recovery? I am self-pay and not telling anyone at work so I am taking vacation time. I do work from home most days (field sales rep) so I won't need to drive to and from an office or anything. But I have the time saved up if I need more than a week. I am just curious how most people felt immediately afterwards. I am trying to avoid creating any suspicion at work, I am not telling any of my coworkers at this point.
