Will I have enough time to heal after surgery?


Recommended Posts

I have my RNY surgery scheduled for December 16th, and my daughter's wedding is scheduled for January 8th. I asked the doctor what kind of condition I would be in by Jan 8th. They said I should be fine physically, and would just be getting to solid foods by then. I doubt I will be able to eat much though by then, but that's ok.

I'm surprised that 3.5 weeks post-op that I would be up for that. I have already met my deductible for this year, so this will be much cheaper than if I wait till January. But still, if there's not enough time to recover before the wedding, I will wait. This is my daughter's wedding, and I want to be there 100% for her.

Does anyone have any thoughts about how well I will recover by then?
