-You may feel pain in your incision or discomfort from how you were laying during surgery. Some neck or shoulder pain is also common. -Each day after surgery you will notice less and less pain. Pain and nausea willcontinue to be managed with IV medication. -Start drinking clear liquids after you pass your “leak test” -It is recommended to do short walks.

Most patients leave the hospital 2 or 3 days after surgery and transition to the following at-home recovery plan. Keep your incision clean. Gently wash with soap and water (no scrubbing), then dry gently but thoroughly. Keep covered with sterile bandages. Take prescription pain medication as needed. Continue clear liquids only. It is recommended to do walks. Walk around at least 3 times per day.
You’ll probably be able to shower and start light activity 5 days in to your gastric sleeve recovery. Can start taking showers or baths (avoid hot tub or jacuzzi).
The 7-day mark is a big day for recovery as you will begin to eat again and can resume driving. Your pain will be mostly gone and you should no longer need prescriptionstrength pain medications. Add thicker drinks and smooth foods (no chunks). Continue your walking, leg, and breathing exercises.
-Incisions should be healing nicely and may no longer need bandages, but may still be a bit puffy, itchy, or irritated. -After the wounds have closed completely, apply special lotions (and sunscreen when exposed to the sun) to minimize scarring. Continue your walking, leg, and breathing exercises. Limit yourself to light physical activity only (lift no more than 10 lbs/4.5 kg)
During weeks 4 to 6 of your gastric sleeve surgery recovery time, you’ll transition into your “new normal.” Heavy lifting can resume, and you will begin your new diet and exercise maintenance routine. Back to normal daily activities and exercise, including heavy lifting. Start full long-term maintenance diet. Probably no longer pain. Take OTC medications if needed.
