Is there a difference in the hospital stays with those who have the hernia repair with the sleeve, versus just the sleeve?

How bad was your hernia if I may ask? I have 3 and one is rather larger grapefruit sized. Just curious.

Mine was also hiatal hernia and went in 12/19 and release 12/20. Have any of you had any complications? I don’t know if it’s from the hernia or not. But I feel like heartburn or acid reflux , something I’ve NEVER had before. [emoji30]

Call your doctor. Doc needs to know what’s going on with you. I’ve heard lots of people have same experience.

I was sleeved 1/9/17 and I wound up in the hospital in August and had emergency hernia surgery. Spent 5 days in the hospital and I just found a tiny hernia on my belly button.

Thats scary. I have one the size of a large grapefruit. I see the surgeon Wednesday so I'm sure I'll have it addressed. But I figure I'm gonna need a more extensive surgery and a lengthy hospital stay. I just wanna be prepared. It' be great if it was an easy fix.

I honestly never asked. I had a hiatal hernia and ulcers and suffered from heart burn and nausea every day before surgery even when I wasn't eating anything. It was really bad. Since surgery, I hadn't experienced heartburn til this month and I'm 6 months post op. I'm really grateful I did the repair.

I had a type 2 hiatial hernia. Stayed overnight. No extra pain, no problems, except my PCP can still hear it. She said they can't 100 % get rid of it, but I no longer have symptoms and have lost 36 pounds.

My wife had sleeve surgery with very large abdominal hernia repair and she was in 5 days total but she had gotten a uti. She would have been in 3 days if not for that. They ended up taking about 3 feet of intestine out of the hernia.

I was out the next day, however, mine ruptured in the same spot and they found it again at the same time I was having my gall bladder surgery. My doctor repaired it by attaching it to my diaphragm to try to keep it from rupturing again. That surgery for me was extremely painful. I wound up back in the ER because of severe chest and stomach pains. Turns out it was a massive amount of gas lol. However, after the second surgery I had. Hard time getting food to go down because of how tight and where the repair was done.

      WOW by the Grace of God 17 years ago I went to Mexico and had a lap band put on for weight loss and my waist was 64 inches and That’s more than 5 foot around and 18 stone  my weight was 375 pounds. Today I went shopping for not sweats and I succeeded. I found pants and a shirt at an awesome price at Burlington by the way. But the real story here is, today. My waist is 45 inches and my weight is 260. Both incredible numbers but think about this. My waist is almost 20 inches smaller around Wow that’s a brain wrecker.  Still, I love my band  I even celebrate it’s birthday 10-26-06 FYI-it’s kind of like choking yourself, and never letting go. And trying to eat. lol Life is good

      Hi all! I’m Heidi, a Canadian ex-Pat living in Sydney, Australia. I’m doing this surgery because my mom died 10 years ago from obesity, she lived her own 600lbs life.  So at 116kg, it’s time to make sure my daughters don’t lose their mom to obesity.

      Drinking my favorite Premier Protein Shake for breakfast, and planned a nice healthy lunch today. Protein first, Veg second, then fruit, and carbs last.  💪
