I haven't had mine yet. But was told the surgery excluding recovery and preop. would be about 60 minutes.

Looking forward to shedding this extra baggage. All 54kgs of it.

My surgery was smooth in and out in just over an hour. nothing else done. small liver, because I stuck to my pre-op diet like a champ.

45 min from the time they took me back, and spoke to my husband. But I was in recovery for 2ish hours, and not really very awake until after 3. I had surgery about 10:30.

Mine was done in about an hour but I had a very good and skilled surgeon. She has always been quick and efficient. Normally they say between 1 to 2 hours is the length, at least at the hospital where I was. Hope this helps!

I just had my sleeve done this past thursday....February 19th 2015. The nurses and my Doctor kept my mama up to date on what was going on. Surgery started at 10:30 am and was finished at 11:08am. I stayed in recovery for a few hours then was moved into my room.

I was rolled into the surgery suite at 7:30. The post-op nurse called hubs at 9:25 to say I was coming out of anesthesia just fine.

I think it just depends on the surgeon. If you are curious, I would ask your's. They will also tell you when you get there the morning of.

Mine was Friday at 7.30 and into recovery from 8.45 to 10.45 and into room at 11. Walking at one. No nausea or pain. Just tender. Came home at 3 on Saturday. Getting about 40 oz. of liquids in a day. Feeling really well. Only took 2- 5 ml doses of pain meds.

        Hello Joset, why haven't you been given a diet plan? Did you have your surgery in the UK? Every surgeon has a different diet, and no two people are on the same one. Weird I know. Contact your team if you can

        Mine was two weeks clear liquids

        Two weeks on soups, milk shakes and broths all with out lumps

        two weeks on pureed foods { I couldn't stomach this step }

        two weeks on soft foods like Protein yogurt, stewed mince and veg, soft scrambled eggs. Pate on hard crackers

        Then onto any food I fancied. If you struggle on any step or with any foods go back a step for a few days. Eggs, salmon and chicken are hard for beginners.

        Sorry I missed your original post, hope you are still on here.
