How soon can I return to work after a gastric plication procedure?

Patients are normally able to return to work several weeks after they have a gastric plication surgery.

After gastric plication, you will need to rest and allow your body time to heal. You will not be able to resume all your typical activities right after the surgery.

Your return to work depends on how soon you regain your strength. Recovery time typically varies between 3 to 6 weeks.

Your doctor will let you know when it’s safe to turn back to work based on your recovery.
