Default Gastric Sleeve - What to expect?

Although my Doc is fantastic, I really haven't been told a lot in regards to post op - and what to expect.

Just after experiences from those who have had the sleeve.

I'm flying down, and flying home again (saves the 6 hour drive). And I'm taking two weeks off work. (I work in Admin, so not a physical job) - But I will have a 2 year old at home mornings and evenings (he will be able to go to daycare during the day)....

So I assume I can't lift my son, but what kind of pain are we talking about day 1-2 post op? Also when can I expect to be able to walk around and shower etc unaided?

I won't have anyone with me at the time of surgery, as my Hubby has no leave available from work, plus will need to stay home for our son - so that side of things make me quite nervous. I've never undergone surgery without someone there with me when I wake up.. . So I'm just trying to get my head around that, and prepare myself as best as I can.
