From preop holding room to PACU was 45 min. I am thinking the actual procedure was about 35-40 minutes.

If there are no complications it should take about 40 to 45 minutes. My family barely sat down in the waiting room before my surgeon was coming out telling them everything went fine and I was doing great. LOL.

Hi, Let's see the last thing I remember is that it was 3pm the next when I was awake enough to see it was 5pm. I'll have to ask my husband (G)

My surgeon was out and commenting to my husband how quick he was done with me, he said 25 minutes. I guess I shrunk my liver enough, I lost 18 pounds during my 4 day liquid diet and the nervousness leading up to my date.

I have a video of mine, and from the first incision to actually pulling my stomach out of the largest incision, it was about 35 minutes.

Mine took about two hours, but my liver was kind of large, even after the pre-op diet.

My surgery took over 2 hours. I had been taking fish oil until 9 days before surgery and because of that, my blood was oozing. Everytime he put a staple on, blood oozed. Thankfully I wasn't hemmorhaging. I was never in danger, I didn't need a transfusion.
