    I stayed for 3 nights. My Dr recommended this. Surgery on Wed out on Sat.The first night I thought wow I feel good but on the second night I was unwell, dry reaching all night and very nauseous. I was glad to have the nursing staff there to help me. I also had a drain in that they removed on the second day. I felt well enough to go home on the Sat, but still quite weak.

    My Dr recomended three days including the operation day I insisted on leaving the next day it was a big mistake.

    Hi Skhuff,

    I totally understand you mot wanting to be in hospital. I hate hospitals and cause trouble when ever I am there. I think the nurses are always glad to get rid of me . Anyway I was told by my doc that the stay is for 3 days.

    Good luck with the op.

    It really varies how long you stay. It depends on what your doctor recommends. I've even heard of some wls being outpatient, which is ridiculous! I would stay 2 nights if your insurance covers it. They have better pain management, it's easier to get in and out of hospital beds. (I've been having a rough time getting out of bed at home.) I was just more comfortable resting with the pain pump and all that. Once you hit home, you're sorta more "on your own". Then you have to get your own pain meds, food, drinks, etc. Each person has to make that choice though!

    I was in two nights. I could have gone home after the first night, but wanted to make sure I was ready. I have a pretty active house with 4 kids and 3 dogs. I was fine to go home after the 2nd day. By the way, I walked every chace I could.

    I had my surgery on Tuesday. Was out on Friday. They removed the JP Drain but left in the Foley til the following Tuesday. It was removed and I was able to empty my bladder fine. Not too bad.

    I was operated on the 29th of July and made to stay in till the 1st of August. Our health system pay for the surgery now so it's a little different for us as money doesn't become an issue.

    Micha, I think the pain and anxiety all depends upon the individual. If you've had surgery before and you're come out of the anesthesia well, you do well with pain, you should be fine. One thing I would remember is when you get home if you have complications, get to the ER!!!!!!!!

    3 nights 4 days for me.
    I stayed a day longer than normal... I wasn't getting enough fluids down. Man was I ever nervous going home and not having an IV. Never thought I would miss having a needle in my hand
