From what I can gather from posts here, nights in hospital have reduced somewhat in some areas due to covid (particularly in the USA).

Pre covid, you could probably have expected up to three nights depending on the surgeon and how well recovery was going.

I only stayed one night. I had my surgery on a Thursday morning and I was discharged from the hospital on Friday afternoon. Keep in mind that it can depend on how you're doing. If you have any complications or problems, they might want to keep you in the hospital for longer.

I had RNY on a Monday late afternoon, was in my room around 6 pm and discharged by 11 am on Tuesday. Easy Peezy 😬

My doctor said one night depending on how I did. Two nights max. I was home after one night-less than 24 hrs after surgery.

I got to my room at 6 pm on day of surgery, went home at 2 pm the next day. Recovered at home alone.

That's great! Im hoping it's just 1 night for me too. I recover better at home.

I wanted to get home as soon as possible, too, but don't be in TOO much of a rush to get home. The nice thing about being in the hospital is that they pump you full of IV fluids, so you don't have to worry about getting dehydrated. It's hard to drink enough fluids for the first week or so, so the IV fluids are a big help.

It should be 2 nights cause after 1 night they had been giving me enough pain meds that Caused me to not retain a lot of the information Due to COVID I couldn’t have my spouse present cause we have 3 kids and they all cannot go into the hospital. I will not name drop where I was.

Hi all!! I was just wondering what the typical amount of days you stay in the hospital after RNY? I'm reading so many things online and I've literally gotten 2 answers from my doctor's office.

I had surgery at the end of September and was discharged the same day (they said due to Covid). I DO NOT recommend this! I wished I could have stayed 1 night and not had to deal with the movements of in/out of the car, up/down the stairs, etc. I had to be back at the hospital the following morning for a barium swallow test - which would have been much easier had I just been allowed to stay IN the hospital. I later learned that I was only 1 of 2 RNY surgeries preformed at that hospital in which the patient was discharged on the same day ... the hospital now mandates a minimum of one night stay. If you have the option to stay for one night, do it.

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.
