I am getting a port replacement due to a slow leak somewhere in my lapband.

Will my surgeon give me a fill at the time of surgery and how long after the operation can I return to work?

Ask your surgeon

It depends - best to ask your surgeon.  Return to work - a day or two.  Fill at the time- sometimes they do, but sometimes not.
