    I'll be good to go

    Hi

    An injured guy is lying on a hospital bed. His mom is holding his hand.
    He says: Don't worry, mom. I'll be good to go.

    Does it mean: Soon I'll go back home/I'll leave this place?

    Thanks

    Re: I'll be good to go

    Yes. 'I'll make a full recovery'.

    '...good to go' is an AE expression with lots of useful positive applications.

    It is rarely used in BE, though I like it.

    I'll be good to go.

    Means "ready"

    "good to go" is a common phrase used in many situations to simply mean something is completed or ready for whatever comes next.

    The project is good to go.

    After the operation, he will be good to go.

    Can we use it meaning that we'll be done soon? "Ten more minutes and I'll be good to go."

    If you are talking about a project, then say, "Ten more minutes and it will be good to go."
