Hi,due my band to bypass dec 16 th and panicking!reassurance please!how long will I be ill for?

Hi Lisa

If you have already had a band, you may not notice any difference at all in the recovery time after a bypass. I’m not sure ‘ill’ is the word I would use either. It’s more ‘discomfort’. Having said that, everyone is different.

I had an open bypass and my gallbladder removed at the same time and I was fine after a few weeks.

One thing I will say though – make sure you take your vitamin and mineral supplements EVERY day after a bypass. They will make a positive difference to your healing.

Very excited for you!
