Length of surgery



Recommended Posts

If you had both parts of the surgery drive at once, how long did your surgery last? Trying to figure out how long my wife may be waiting

I think the actual surgery was 1.5-2 hours but what takes the most time is the recovery room. I was in there for about 5 hours until they could find me a room.

I'm still pre-op (Traditional BPD-DS 9/17). Surgeon said total surgery would be about 6 hours.

But he's also doing a Hiatal Hernia repair (1-2 hours) and Appendectomy (1-2 hours). That leaves 2-4 hours for the BPD-DS itself.
