Depends of the Surgeon and they will let you know ahead of time. If it's done its usually placed while under general anesthesia so you won't feel or see it happen.

I don’t have one initially but I got taken back into theatre a couple of hours after my op so they inserted one then. It definitely made life easier not having to get out of bed for a couple of days.

Mine was Go just before you're transported to OR; unless I run into something unplanned- You'll be catheter- free! Needless to say--I Did Follow the Plan! Tube Free for ME!😛💦🙏

I didn't have one either and believe me, I was sweating it out until I found out my surgeon didn't do it!

I didn't have one, the dr told me that they didn'y put one so you get to move right after surgery, but I think it depends on the surgeon

      Donated about 80 Shirts that are too large on me. 
       
      Pretty much decreased my wardrobe by 80% and have only a few items. 
      Guess I'll be doing laundry more.

      Donated 50 lbs of Jeans and another 30lbs of shirts to Salvation Army. 
      Had to go buy some new clothes that I used to hate, but now kind of like. Trying not to buy too many though as I know in a few months I'll be donating them as well.

      Hello everyone! I just joined the forum today. Had my surgery almost 3 months ago and lost about 44 pounds. Most of the weight was lost within the first month, and my weight loss slowed down almost to a stop. I became very frustrated. Talked with my dietitian several times, and it turns out I haven't been eating enough. Who knew! I was eating around 500 calories a day, and exercising daily. Well, I had to up my intake to 800 to 1,000 calories. I'll see what happens.
