I guess it really depends on what you do for work as well. If you have an office job with not a lot of moving about, you are going to be able to go back to it sooner than if you have a job that requires you to do any lifting or anything too strenuous.

I had a band, so my recovery time was a lot quicker than for the bypass, but you really need to have a think about the activity levels involved in your job. If you are able to, do as Petal has suggested and try to book at least 3 or 4 weeks off work, then if you can go back sooner, they will be pleasantly surprised, or just enjoy the extended break and use it as a time to get used to your new lifestyle.

Take care
