depends on the surgeon. I didn't have one.

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

      Good Morning! Today is the first day of my liver shrinking diet!  It is hard being in the office and in my classes thinking about my old habits. But surgery is so close so can't complain too much! !10 days away!! Here we go.

      I have to say, even more than 2 years out, it is so much easier to be good when your busy and so easy to go wrong when your bored.  Crappy weather and the wife is sick so i feel trapped in this house and i have to really watch myself.  At least the holiday leftovers are gone.
      Going to get out this week even if for only a few hours, maybe go see  Ford vs Ferrari that looks real good.
      Ok, whining over, I hope everyone is doing well and had a good thanksgiving.

        I hear ya. I notice the only time I ever "feel like eating" when I'm not actually hungry is when I'm watching TV for too long.
