How long was your surgery?



Recommended Posts

I keep reading the different lengths of time the DS take during surgery. My surgery is schedule June 22. I'm trying to prepare my hubby :)

Different surgeons take different amounts of time due to their skill, hospital facilities, and a host of other factors. I would ask your surgeon directly in order to get the most accurate answer.

I have my surgery on the 28th- I found out they "blocked" 6 hours for me. I have not yet confirmed anything further the hospital is supposed to call me to confirm everything.

I asked my Dr today during my PreOp appt. He says with lapband removal it should be only 2 hours. If I still had my gallbladder too, it may be a little longer. Plus he only expects me to stay 1 night too. I know everyone is different. With different surgeons. [emoji3]

Dec 30, 2010.

I had got lost about 60 before surgery. Now sitting about 25 below that after gaining some weight due to mindless eating.

started at 370

Surgery at 310

Currently at 272.25

Since True Results shut down, my extra-large band with a little over 9.25 ccs is a mite too full and no one bothers with that anymore.

Now it is all me. Which makes of it somewhat more difficult.

Especially when it wakes me up in the wee hours of the morning because my saliva got stuck.

Somewhere between 4.5-5 hours.

I am still pre-op so I can't say for sure, but my doctor told me it would take about 90 minutes for the DS. He's well-known for laparoscopic procedures, though; he's known for being very quick and skilled.

I think the hospital blocked 3 hours for me. In addition to DS, I'll have my gallbladder removed and hiatal hernia repaired. I had my pre-op appointment today at the hospital and the bariatric nurse told me that I should be in a room by 11:30 or 12:00. (Surgery is scheduled for 7:30.) In other words, who knows?

      Currently waiting on a surgery date. Hope to hear soon. I have been fighting for the sleeve surgery for 10 years. I am so ready!

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
