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?

      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.
