Any one go home the same day ?



Recommended Posts

I told my surgeon that I did not want to stay overnight and he said that if I felt OK I could go home the same day ? Any one do that ?

I was going to ask my surgeon the same question. I honestly feel like I heal much better at home Andean never relax in the hospital. I was planning on asking him the next time I see him.

I had my surgery on 9/5. I prepared for this for one year. Nothing could Have prepared me for the recovery period. I planned on staying one night in hospital, and ended up staying three nights. My surgery was on Wednesday morning and I went home Saturday night. As I am writing this, I feel pretty good, and each day I feel that I am getting better and stronger. Day two I was vomiting blood, and for the remainder of the days I was not able to keep one thing down.

I highly recommend you staying in the hospital at least 1 to 2 nights. I know that everyone experiences things differently, and we are all different and how we recover, but for me it was a tad bit rough. I was not vomiting up fresh blood, it was all blood that was just residual from the actual surgery in my stomach, I had the VSG done by a very renowned surgeon. He is one of the best, and I completely trusted him with this entire process, and like I said, I feel better each and every day and I am so grateful to God, but please do not try and go home on the first night, stay in the hospital and let those nurses help you.

I had my procedure in a surgery center in the morning and was out by 4:00 pm the same day. I felt great. They said that I could stay overnight if I needed to. I had no problems.

My surgery was done outpatient at a surgery center. I was home by 3:00 the same day. I'm glad I didn't have to stay overnight.

After being on this forum I have come to a conclusion that every doctor does it differently, and I think everyone heals at a different rate. I am 5 weeks out and lost 50lbs total including 2 week pre-op diet. Haven't had any problems eating (but taking it slowly). It seems to get better every day!!!!

I begged my way out after one overnight. Surgeon was surprised that I would ask for this, but I felt fine. Sleever here -- I suspect this makes a difference in recovery?

Holy crap, it has taken me 6 months to reach a little more than that -- you are doing great!

Yeah, folks who do RNY have an average of 1 extra night's hospital stay.

I don't think my team will let me out, day of. Which is almost too bad, because I'm afraid of hospitals. Even if I have no pain, no nausea (yeah right), I will be really uncomfortable the whole time I'm there. But having medical professionals keep an eye on me for 18-24 hours after surgery feels like a good idea.

The IV Fluid can also do wonders for rehydrating you while you recover, and you camt get that at home. Think of your hospital as place to receive CARE, and you deserve that after surgery. (And part of the care package is getting up and walking)
You'll do great!

I had surgery on 8/25/18. My sleeve was outpatient. They sent me hime as soon as i woke up. I live in Florida. I was very nervous about not having a hospital stay, luckily everything went great but would have preffered an overnight for piece of mind.

      I'm going to hit my stall now. I can tell, because 1) almost everybody stalls when they start moving on to real foods, in addition to the liquids, and 2) I'm at 302 pounds, lol, and the scale knows I want to see the 2 in the first digit.
      I'm fine. It's not going to freak me out or really even upset me. Honestly, I could stand the reconfiguration of inches that always comes with a stall, for me.
      I'm posting here in between bites of refried beans, which (knock on wood) seem to be going pretty well for me, so far. I'm so happy. Between ricotta (with a little sauce and a little seasoning) and refried beans (with a very small amount of low-fat cheese melted in), I can live without chewable foods for a pretty long time. (I'm also eating yogurt and ricotta cheese.) I do want to upgrade to the ricotta bake, because it has better protein and might cut down the number of protein shakes I need in a day. It's probably a bit more firm than ricotta alone, so I held off at first, but I think it's time, don't you? Plus, my spouse can put it over pasta and enjoy it with me.
      I'm eating 2.5 ounces of ricotta in a serving and maybe that much in beans? (this is my first attempt, but that's how much I served myself) I can eat 4 ounces of Greek yogurt in half an hour, which feels like a lot before the 2 week anniversary of my surgery. But I still haven't really figured out my body's "full" signal. I felt a little sick and stopped eating, one time, which made me think I'd overdone it. Other times, I just take tiny bites, sometimes a few minutes apart, for half an hour. And then I refrigerate or throw out what's left, because that was the guidance the nutritionists gave me. But other people talk about a sore shoulder or something as their signal, and I haven't found that yet.
      I guess it'll come with time and practice.

        Prediction: ACCURATE! I was up .2 this morning. Here's hoping my thighs are smaller after this stall, so I can finally wear smaller pants. (The waists of pants that "fit" are too loose, but the thighs are still tight. And belts are uncomfortable on my incisions.)

      2. Orchids&Dragons

        Don't talk yourself into a stall. They're common, but not everyone has them early on. I honestly haven't had one yet. I've only had 3 "up" weeks in almost 8 months and none of them was from a stall. (One was from vacation, two were recovering from losing 13 lbs in 10 days because I was prescribed too much diuretic and ended up dehydrated in the er ☹️) You're unique, just let it go.

        It is early for you to recognize a "full" signal. Pretty much all the foods you're eating right now are sliders that just pass through your pouch. Other than the refried beans, most of them won't stay long enough to trigger a "fullness" feeling. Don't worry, it will come. You're doing great!

      3. CrankyMagpie

        If it's a stall, it's only in comparison to the ridiculous speed with which I lost during immediate pre- and post-op. I'm still down like half a pound from when I posted this. (Half a pound in four days is slow for this stage of the journey, but it's still good!)

        Thanks for the reassurance! It's good to be told I'm doing well. ❤️

      4. Orchids&Dragons

        Yeah, we love that non-linear weight loss when we have a 4-pound week. Not so much with a 1/2-pound week. I only weigh twice a week (and only write it down on Saturday) in an attempt to keep the insecurity monster at bay 😉

      211!!! Randomly super excited to have read that on the scale this morning! It almost doesn't feel real!

      Haven't hit a stall but this week with only a 2 lbs loss after hitting the gym for 5 days is really getting to me.

        I had a stall for 2 weeks, lost a couple pounds, then started the gym and now I'm stalled again!

      2. GreenTealael

        Think of your gym time not for weightloss but as preplastic surgery. I promise the more you work out (whether you lose fat or gain muscle through it) the better your skin tone, tightness and elasticity will look in the long run... (Learning that now, too late after taking a break from the gym during a recent very active losing phase, I HAVE TO GO BACK)...

        YOU'RE DOING GREAT!!!

    • GreenTealael

      Alright. No more adulting. Burned my nose, broke my espresso maker (officially), stubbed my toe, and cracked my phone screen all before 8am.
      Going back to bed.

        I love my fleece lined tights.... :)

      2. sillykitty

        Hmmm .... tell me more about this?? I'm a Cali girl, but spend a lot of time in colder climates. I like the idea of these!

      3. FluffyChix

        See. I read this ^^^ as, "I'm a Call girl..." and I'm like, well, I bet plenty of call girls would appreciate the thermal effect of fleece lined tights. :D

        Here you go! Trying to wrap my head around these, btw, but in Houston Texas, there are about 2 weeks in February when I would possibly need them. :D

        Ahahaha eyes playing tricks on us!

        They are thicker than regular opaque tights and are just so cozy...

      5. sillykitty

        Ok ... I have some in my Amazon cart .... :)
