For Those who had Robotic Gastric Bypass



Recommended Posts

For those who had Robotic Gastric Bypass, how many days did you stay in the hospital including your surgery date? I was told if all goes well and I am scheduled for the surgery in the AM which I am scheduled for 10:30 am, I will be discharged the next afternoon as long as I am keeping fluids down.

I walked and walked and sipped and sipped and was home the next afternoon. No complications

I had complications and ended up staying in the hospital for three days. However, that had nothing to do with the fact that it was robotic surgery.

I had my surgery on 3/19. I went in at 7:30 AM, I had extensive adhesions so my surgery was twice as long if not longer than expected. I was discharged the following day at noon.

I had robotic gastric bypass on 3/11/20. Went in at 8am, 10:30am surgery, all was great! I walked, walked, walked and thought I had this. Then, close to noon on the 12th, nausea came on and I could not imagine holding anything down. It was like my stomach was in my throat and was not about to let anything by. They increased anti nausea IV meds and by evening I was over it. I stayed the 2nd night to be safe. They sent me home with Zofran every 8 hours, Promethazine liquid yuck Syrup every 6 hours, Gabapentin liquid every 8 hours. Even now, 2.5 weeks out, I still get quite nauseated if I don’t take anti nausea meds. Getting better....but not there yet.

I was supposed to be discharged the next day after surgery. Ended up getting a Migraine and vomiting for hours so I needed another day for fluids but yes that sounds normal. Good luck!

I had my surgery on a Wednesday around noon and was discharged Friday afternoon. I could've gone home on the day after but was having problems peeing because of the scopolamine patch they put behind my ear for nausea. There was no way I could've gone home the day after, I just felt so awful.

      Officially no longer over weight! Goal #1 reached! I'm now under 80kgs (176 lbs) at 179cm (5'10") and 10 months post-op and am over the moon. My weight at 79.9 kgs (176 lbs) gives me a BMI of 24.9 which means that I have a normal weight! OMG.
      I still want to lose about 16 lbs more though in order to get safely into the middle range to insure against that little regain that happens. The I have maintenence in front of me as well.
      BUT I have hit my first goal. Yeah me!!!

        Fantastic! That's such a great goal to reach and one I hope to get to this year as well.

      I had my gastric sleeve done September 10, 2020... I started out 330# before surgery.... I'm down to 260# now... I've been stalled out for over two months now.... I exercise when I can (Bad back/knees)... I follow my diet , get my protein and drink my water... But still not losing any weight... I've done everything I can think of to break the stall.... Even went back to liquid diet....  Sometimes I think this was a mistake having the surgery...

        sorry to hear that don't feel down. Maybe a reset meaning something new. I am in the process of having the surgery a second time. I had Lapland in 2012 removed in 2018 and I have gained everything back and some. When I stalled on lapband I had to do something new for me I joined a free boot camp and Zumba and then boom dropped 38 pounds in 2 months. I know you said bad back and knees so find something with your limits. But I think try something new I stalled for 8 months

      Happy anniversary to me - well almost. Friday marks the one yr anniversary of asking my GP if she thought I’d be a candidate for WLS.  
      What an exciting, sometimes frustrating but ultimately rewarding journey. I’ve lost 40kg or about 40% of my body weight & am below my goal weight. Some days I  just can’t believe where I am now from where I was 12 months ago. I never imagined this reality. 
      I am grateful for the encouragement I received from family & friends. I am grateful I have a supportive GP. They helped smooth the rough patches & kept me on track. I’m also grateful for this site. The information & support has been so helpful & eased many worries. 
      I’m still sorting out maintenance (what works one week doesn’t the next) but I’m up for the challenge.

      Too much anxiety and stress:
      So lately thanks to COVID 19 (I don't have it though been trying to stay safe and healthy) I've been having severe anxiety and panic attacks lately. I've always had this problem but it's getting worse so as a result I've been having bad insomnia and getting sleep is hard for me right now. I wish it were easier but it's a work in progress AGAIN. I thought I got over this hump a while ago and was getting sleep but now my insomnia is back in full spring and I hate it! My grandmother is also moving on Tuesday and that is also stressing me out because I'll have no family nearby since everybody is in other states now thanks to California being too high. It makes me so sad man! But I am seeing her today on Monday for the last time before she leaves on Tuesday this week.
