Hello and welcome to HCM. Thank you for your query. Gstric sleeve procedure carries with it a very short recovery period, but this recovery period excludes any form of strenous activity and a strict restricted diet initially. Scuba diving is an activity that increases the pressure both externally and internally, which could prove to be harmful to the sleeve created. Doctor s usually recommend against such activities after a gastric sleeve, but if you really wish to do so I would first recommend a complete evaluation by your doctor and at least a 3-6 month gap between the procedure, and the activity (scuba diving). Wishing you lots of luck and a quicker and complete recovery so you could return to your active lifestyle. I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications at: http://doctor.healthcaremagic.com/doctors/dr-shoaib-khan/64581 . I would gladly help you. Best wishes.
