Day surgery and February 2 surgery date!



Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I am new here and wanted to see if anyone is having surgery on or near Feb 2?! I am having the gastric sleeve done. Since Covid is still causing hospitals to be overflowing they are doing my surgery as a day surgery. Has anyone had this done as a day surgery? I'm nervous and excited and still in shock that it's happening! I am a little concerned with it being a day surgery but I'm sure they know what they're doing.

Any tips or tricks would be appreciated!

Thanks!

They schedule my surgery for Feb 3rd after canceling twice. Since things in Massachusetts are very bad I don’t know if it’s gonna happen. The secretary didn’t mention day surgery, so I’m assuming that will be two days stay.

Oh that’s nice. Knowing that gives me hope that my surgery will finally happen. Mine will be at Brigham hospital in boston. Good luck to you too.

I’m scheduled for VSG on February 9 here in Tallahassee, FL. COVID numbers are very high down here but, as far as I’ve heard, my surgery will go ahead as planned. Our hospital is on “lock-down” so only one person can come in the hospital with me (my husband) and even then he’ll have to pass the screening. I’m nervous but more excited since I’ve been working toward this for what seems like forever.

I hear you on that! They made me go through quite the program to get to this point and between it all I have been in and out of the hospital with back issues that pushed this off, so all together I've been waiting 2 years since I decided this was for me. I cried when I finally got to meet with the surgeon! Good luck to you and I'll make sure to post when I have mine done!
