What is recovery time for gastric banding surgery?

1-7 days. Most it's 3-4 days. If you work for yourself a day and if you work for the government six weeks.
Fairly quick. Most band patients can go home the same day as surgery. Typically they can return to work a couple of days afterwards. Strenuous activity, such as weight lifting may take a little longer so that the port doesn't become displaced but most patients can jog and perform light activity within a couple of weeks.
