Hi Life is Good to Me,
Many go off their PPIs immediately after their surgery. Others stay on during their early recovery, to offer additional protection. If you're unable to take PPIs because of their side effects, I would assume you'd go off immediately. If you wanted some protection during the very early stages of recovery, you could take Zantac or something similar.
