How does it usually take your body to recover and be back to

This answer was rated:

how long does it usually take your body to recover and be back to normal after having abdominal surgery / removal of lap band? when does your body start losing weight naturally with eating right and excercise again and stop bloating on and off?

Recovery time from this surgery is about 4 weeks.

You will usually be allowed to go back to work by 10 days, unless work is strenuous.

You will progress from a liquid to semi-solid to solid diet according to your doctor's instructions.

Weight loss will start after about a month following a strict schedule of proper diet and exercise.

Wish you the best.
