  1. I had my sleeve surgery on Novemeber 27 so on Wednesday it will by 3 weeks. I was in the hospital for 2 nights and 3 days. Everything went so smooth that I was surprised. For those of you who have not yet had your surgery and want a more blow by blow about the surgery I will share my experience but I will say that It may not be the same for you. I had to be at the hospital at 5:30 am. Considering I had to drink 32 oz of Zero GA the night before take a shower before bed and get up at 3:30 am and drink another 32oz drink, shower again and drive an hour to the hospital and be there at 5:30. (I did not go to sleep) When I got to the hospital they showed me to the pre-op area and started two Iv"s, one in each arm which is required for the robotic sleeve surgery. My surgeon is very thorough so on Monday I had 7 tubes of blood for bloodwork and I had bruises on both arms. I saw my surgeon, met the surgeon chosen to assist, anesthesia doctor and my nurse. I was taken in to surgery around 7am. I don't remember anything after that until I woke up in recovery and the next thing I remember I was in my room around 11am. I was not able to have anything to drink or eat but I was up walking around as soon on the first day as I could.
    I was started on clear liquids the day after surgery and on Friday and went home about 6pm. I had seven insisions instead of the normal 5 because he took out some scar tissue but they were glued. More later
