How long after metabolic and bariatric surgery will I have to be out from work?

Your bariatric surgeon will advise you in their treatment plan. Generally speaking, you can return to regular day-to-day functioning within about a week following the procedure. However, if it is at all possible, it is suggested that gastric sleeve patients take two to four weeks off work to give themselves time to adjust to their new stomach and daily routine.
