hey there, Kier - the recovery time varies - the LEAST i've ever heard of was 2 weeks, for someone who had a desk job and could set his own hours. he wasn't back at work full time for a month, though.
most take at least 4 weeks. 6-8 is the expected amount of time for most people, though.
but look at it this way, by the time you go through all the preop testing, and the approvals, and the scheduling, it'll be awhile anyway...
congrats on all the progress you've made!!!! which seminar did you go to?
Start your day with a smile, and get it over with.
Keeping it off is a hundred decisions a day that help you maintain what you achieved. And that's the hard part. - L Sanders
