How Long will one be Out of Work after having Lap Band Surgery?

Many people who have weight loss surgery will do so to not only lose weight, but to improve their overall health and well being. One popular weight loss surgery is lap band surgery. They often will have the surgery to reduce such health conditions as sleep apnea, hypertension, type 2 diabetes, breathing problems, and heart conditions. Lap band surgery will help them lose the weight and keep it off.

When having lap band surgery, an inflatable gastric band is inserted into the stomach where a band is placed around the upper part of the stomach. A small stomach pouch and passageway is created which limited food intake and causes one to feel full. The result is a loss of weight. Adjustment of the band is done adding or removing saline into the pouch. The size of the band depends on one’s particular weight loss needs and their health requirements. Lap band surgery is a safe and non invasive weight loss surgery with a general recovery period.

After lap band surgery, most people return to work within 2-3 days. Your surgeon will determine when you can return to your regular daily activities, however, most people go back to their regular routines 7-10 days after surgery. Lap band surgery is the least invasive weight loss surgery. There is no stapling or cutting of the small bowel or stomach wall, and there is not any intestinal re-routing. As well, there are very small incisions and minimal scarring. Pain is minimal and the hospital stay is short. The surgery can easily be reversed at any time and the stomach will restore to its regular form.

There are also fewer risks associated with lap band surgery. For instance, adjustments are performed without further surgery, there is a decreased risk of muscle mass and hair loss, reduced risk of nutritional deficiencies, and there is no “dumping syndrome” associated with nutritional intake limitations.

After one has lap band surgery, they will only have to spend a couple of hours recovering in the hospital. When they are sent home, they will be given instructions on care and diet, including what they can eat, in what form, and how much they can eat at a time. They will also have a number of check ups with their physician.
