Length of Hospital stay

I am get worried; I am having my surgery on a Thursday & my doc tells me I should be able to go home on Saturday. Maybe I'm a wimp but this seems like a really short stay at the castle to me. I am having a TAH and also a TVT. My doc has also told me there is a good chance I will be coming home with a catheter.

Am I being dumb?

Re: Length of Hospital stay

That time frame is within normal limits. From what I have read being discharged with a catheter after a sling is not uncommon. I can understand how you feel the hospital stay is short. Do not worry about that now. If you are not ready to leave on Saturday you will not be discharged. The estimated date of discharge tends to be the least time you will need to stay. Make your plans and have help lined up for your arrival home. Things will work themselves out.

Re: Length of Hospital stay

I've seen where two to three days is usually the norm for a TAH with no complications. If your physician feels you need to stay longer, he/she will extend it...
