Hi there, Did most of you with the sleeve stay one or 2 nights?

I think with covid they want people out faster.

I never had any pain with my sleeve, just had a drop in blood pressure due to the scopolamine patch and they removed it and I was just fine. Only took one dose of pain meds when I got home the first night as a precaution. Never needed anything after that.

Surgery 8/26 home 8/27. Just make sure you drink liquids and walk around. They see you doing both and you should be home soon.

Seems like many go home next day, which would be great.

take care!

I had surgery early on a Wednesday morning and was home by 11:00am Thursday. I'm told a one night stay is routine, however they won't push anyone to leave - especially if you don't get up and walk, aren't getting enough fluids and can't go to the bathroom (pee). I was able to do all three immediately after surgery, and even then, they offered to keep me another night if I wanted to stay on stronger (IV) meds. The first 5-7 days at home were pretty miserable pain-wise, but literally overnight, I felt better on day 7. I woke up with almost zero pain, a lot of energy, and just overall felt a ton better.

Thank you for sharing this!

Glad you got through to day 7!

I think they are pushing for one night... but have me prepared for possibility of 2.

Yes I am doing well. I have another advise for you. Let your body tell you what it will agree with you. Sometimes I can lay on my left side. Sometimes on my right side but I listen to my body.

I had surgery 7.27.20 and stayed one night. I was walking and sipping Water just fine but wanted pain meds at the hospital. Went home with children's liquid tylenol, which scared me bc i thought i needed narcotics, but realized i was just fine without them. I had no nausea or gas pain others mention. Like others mention tho, the first few days i would get a shooting pain if i smooshed my stomach sitting too far up, getting to a standing position from laying and laying back from sitting. Couldnt sleep on my sides for about a week and a half without that tight feeling and pain and then instantly all that changed one day. Im 40 days out and sleep on my side, no pain at all, tolerating foods and drinks just fine, feeling completely healed, my incisions glue has come off all 6 incisions, i feel my energy rising, and my husband says he notices im already happier bc i have zero back pain and hip pain like i did prior to surgery! It's amazing! U wont regret it.prayers for u!!
