This is major surgery !!! If your company is family, or close friends who understand you cant do too much, and have pain meds on board, may not be up to your old self, then by all means have visitors. Dont expect to prepare for company, no vacuuming or moving furniture. The first week all I wanted to do was sip warm protein broth, rest sleep and shuffle around the house. My kids came to see me. I was not up to much conversation. By the end of the second week I was healed enough for driving and walking slowly around the grocery store holding on to the cart for support. The 6 th week the internal cuts have healed for you to be more comfortably active and eat a more varied diet. I would entertain then , not right after surgery.
