I am considering having the Gastic Sleeve surgery in a month’s time and am worried about avoiding complications and giving myself enough time to heal before traveling.
I’ve already scheduled an appointment with the doctor back home. I am flying in for the surgery in my home town as I want to have it around friends and family and this doctor is a family friend and has operated on my sister, cousin and uncle. I arrive and visit the anesthesiologist the next day, with the surgery scheduled for the day after. After 16 days at home post-op I am scheduled to travel back and resume my post-grad course on the 17th day of my recovery.
How can I catch complications early on post surgery and what symptoms should I look out for?
Also, is two weeks recovery time enough for me to travel and resume my studies abroad?
