It will just all depend on you and how it goes.  I flew from Seattle to NYC 2 weeks to the day after my RNY and was able to stomp up and down Manhattan and go to shows and such.  The only bad part for me was the food issues since I was with someone who was excited to go eat out at all these odd places.    Good luck!  I hope that it all goes smoothly for you and you are able to do everything you want to!

I think as long as you can stop and get out of the car to walk around, you will be okay. I was back at the gym a week after surgery. We are all different, so it depends on how well you are healing. Just do a LOT of walking after surgery and you will heal more quickly.

 I could not have done that at 2 weeks.

Surgery weight:  232 lbs. / Goal: 145 lbs. Height:  5'5"     Fat? Ain't nobody got time for that.
