After any surgery is performed there is usually a waiting period before the patient can return to work. Recently, a small survey was conducted online (Duodenal Switch Yahoo Groups) to see how many weeks after Duodenal Switch surgery patients returned to work and how long it took them to get their energy levels back to normal
The poll results show that almost 50% of the patients (votes in the red box) were able to return to work within 4 weeks after the surgery, and within 6 months all patients had returned to work.
When Will My Energy Levels Return To Normal?
According to the survey results shown below, for more than half of the patients (votes in red box), energy levels returned to normal within 8 weeks after surgery.
