    Hi Susan,

    I'm having the op on Monday my surgeon told me approx 2 weeks but my gp was more realistic (probably because she is the one seeing patients after the op) and she said it will be more like 4 weeks sometimes more or less depending on the individual.

    It depends what type of work you do.

    If it is just sitting in an office you could go back after 3 weeks if you have keyhole surgery and 6 weeks if you have the bigger op.

    I am an nhs patient.
