    I have my pre op visit 10/11, and then surgery on 10/30. I was nervous to begin with, but after reading some posts I am really feeling nervous. To make it worse is I'm affraid of needles so I know I'm going to be in a world of pokes lol. Just trying to to remind myself of the benefits. One question, how long where many of you out of work? I have heard a week, then others say 2.

    Most of the sleeve patients I've read on here are usually 1-2 weeks, depending on how much time they can take off work and usually are cleared to return after 2 weeks. Bypass is a little different, takes more time to recover, I returned to work after 3 weeks, which was a little too soon, but some take 4-6 weeks before returning to work.
