What is the expected recovery time following gastric band surgery in France

In general terms most people can recover quite quickly from bariatric surgery as it is done by laparascope which is less invasive than general surgery. If your surgery is done in France at one of our hospitals you will be fit to travel home after 48 hrs. Once you get home I think it depends on your own pain threshold but most surgeons would recommend clients to have two weeks off work following the gastric band surgery date. Each Patient is different, you have to play it by ear,
  • expect to be tired because you will be eating very little in the first couple of weeks
  • remember that you have had an abdominal operation so your insides need to too heal too so gently does it.
  • take some light exercise like walking or swimming but don’t be over zealous or exert pressure on your abdominal area.
  • slowly build up your activities taking in to account your own energy level.
Don’t over do it, but at the same time don’t be tempted to sit and take pity on yourself as this could lead to becoming depressed and being tempted to start eating too much again which is what got you here in the first place.   Read more…     facebook like banner
