I'm looking for some "individual / personal" travel advice / experience from post-op patients ... I am scheduled for RNY on August 14; however, I have a week long vacation to Maui the last week of September. I have spoken with my surgeon about this and he says I will be ready to travel and should enjoy my week but ...
Having never had a "surgery" before ... would you think a trip like this was okay to make? What could my limitations potentially be as far as activities (we do plan snorkeling along with the 23 mile bike ride down the Haleakala volacano mixed with tons and tons of walking)? I know there will be exteme limitations on my food (no ice cream and no shaved ice) so is this something "you" would be okay with?
My "gut" tells me this will be my lifestyle going forward so now would be a good time but my support system is split 50/50 on this.
Thank you for any advice you can provide.
