Just plain band surgery doesn't take so long. I had band replacement and plication and I think that was about two hours.

Surgery is an hour, but 30 mins set up and 30 recovery. Least that's how mine was.

I was on the table at 8am, remember asking the recovery nurse the time at 10:20 and home by 11:30. Think the actual surgery was about 1hr-1hr15m. I was on the operating table for a bit while they did the IV and hooked me up to the monitors.

I went to the OR at 1:15 I was in recovery by 2:30 and that was with the prep in the OR once I got there. I think it depends on the surgeon, how many he has done, and other things. He said it took him 45 minutes from start to finish.

They quoted me 1 hour for the lapband only surgery, but I ended up being over 2 hours since he fixed my hiatal hernia (had no clue I had it, you sign a waiver that consents he can fix it while in there doing lapband) and got the lapband at the same time.

My surgeon jokes that any surgery lasting longer than 15 mins, he's bored! It would depend on what he finds when he is in there. My surgey was pretty normal, and I would say that with the prep and everything, I was about 3 hrs from prep to waking up. My son, was in surgery, however, for approx 2 hrs, when the surgeon discovered that he had organs moved around due to an accident as a teenager. So, the surgeon fixed his organs. But, he was out of surgery and in recovery and home from the hospital in about 6 hours total. Not sure if that helps. I was trying to say, it depends on what happens when he is doing the surgery! karen
