Re: Real time in the Operating Room

I was told 2 - 3 hours. It was a bit under 2.5. My time in the recovery room was much longer than expected because I had some respiratory issues.

Re: Real time in the Operating Room

I was under 2 hours. I can't remember specifically how long the doctor told me it would take but I expected to be under about 2 hours.
