Dr. Gonzalez shares when a woman can return to work after her sleeve gastrectomy.
Patients after a sleeve gastrectomy will be seen in the office about a week after surgery, and then they probably require a few more days of recovery. So in general, return to work after a sleeve gastrectomy will occur approximately a week and a half to two weeks after the operation.
