    Aanha lucky, you become mobile straight away after undergone gastric sleeve surgery. Anyways, the hospital stay after undergone gastric sleeve surgery is of 1-2 days only after undergone this bariatric procedure.

    Hi I am having sleeve surgery on Sept. 28th. One of the many test I had to have was a sleep test to determine if I had sleep apnea. I do but there was no follow up scheduled? I do not use a CPAP. So how long after your surgery did you stop having to use the CPAP??

    My surgeon says they have everyone stay over for one night so the next day they can do a leak test of the sutures in the stomach. I am hoping one night only. I work from a home office and I need to be able to work (salesman, so when I am out no one is doing the selling for me). Does this sound like a reasonable expectation? I am mostly seated at my pc working.

    If you work from home, I think you'd be able to start working a few hours a day after just 3-4 days, and increase from there.

    I stayed over one night and had the barium swallow test to check for leaks. It was the grossest thing I ever drank.

    U just might be tired from anesthesia and lack of food. Most likely only one night.

    I don't think you'll know for sure until you give it a try. Some people have pain, some don't. Some are bothered for a long time, others for just a few days.

    One overnight in the states. Surgery in the morning, home the next afternoon, a 5 minute drive. (To sleep.) Do what works for you.

    Surgery time 730
    Walking the hall 945
    Home by 5pm

    I did really well. I suggest walking as soon as you get your wits. This is what helped get rid of that awful gas feeling

    I was in 3 days. Would have been 2 but got high fever and blood sugar shot up very high. I did take pills for diabetes but was given several insulin shots to get it under control. I got nauseous on first day but none since then.
