Length of stay in the hospital

I just became a little nervous. I am having surgery at 12:30 PM in the afternoon. Am having a vag hyst, A&P repair, and bladder suspension. Just checked my insurance authorization, and it has be going home the next day. Does this seem right?

I'm scheduled for an LAVH, and he's telling me I may be able to go home the next day...I don't know about the other procedures you're having done though.

Sometimes insurance companies will only authorize one night in the hospital, but it doesn't necessarily mean you have to go home the next day. If your doctor feels you require more hospital time, your doctor can contact your insurance company to request additional time. Try not to worry about it too much.

That could be a bit rushed -- I'm with Deb, if you or your Dr feel you need another night then you should have it.

I had a TVH on August 25 and because I ran a fever and had sever pain, I had to stay for three nights. As long as the Dr. has a reason for you to stay, it should be approved by your insurance. As Crossfire said, don't worry about it.

I had a LAVH+BSO and the surgery was at approx. 9:30 am on Thursday and I went home at 2 pm on Friday. This was even after losing a lot of blood during the surgery. They literally had to pour me into the car to go home! But, I was much happier at home and could sleep much better. The Dr. makes the decision about when to release you, so if you're not ready, they will keep you in the hospital longer.

My insurance only approved me for one night as well, but allowed an additonal night for any "medical necessity". I cound't pee on my own after day one, so they kept me another night.
If you don't feel up to going home, tell your doc. They will come up with a reason for your insurance company. I have learned through all of this to ask for what you want and about 99% of the time, everyone is willing to accomodate.
Good luck!

I was VERY worried when I went to pre register at the Castle. I was listed as out patient surgery and had pretty much the same surgery as you are having. I had my surgery at 1PM on Thursday and was told I could go home Friday. I was ready to go home by Noon Friday but my dr. shot it down and I ended up being released about 9AM Saturday. Once I was home I was very glad he made me stay the extra night. Sunday was a hard day for me and I was really wishing I was still in the Castle. It all worked out fine but I am glad he didn't let me come home Friday.

Good luck and wishing you a speedy recovery!

I'm scheduled for a (robotic assisted) LSH with TVT- my Dr. told me 2-3 days in the hospital. NOT what I wanted to hear, hopefully they let me out sooner.
Good luck with your surgery!
