Estimated Time off of Work from Abdominoplasty with Complications?
I had an abdominoplasty with plication on 10/12/11. The procedure lasted around 4 1/2 hours. Later that same night while in recovery I had internal bleeding and had to undergo emergency surgery to stop the bleeding. That procedure lasted another four hours. I lost 3 pints of blood in total and two days postop required a blood transfusion (2 units). I am curious as to how much time off of work is typical for this situation. I have up to 12 weeks allowed through disability. Thank you!
It depends, but time off should be comparable to standard tummy tuck
