Re: Going home day of surgery?

I was just told the same thing. my pre-op appt is tomorrow but was told today it is outpatient surgery. Really?! She said to pack overnight bag just in case but if that were the case I would leave early the next morning. That is kind of hard to comprehend for such surgery..all I can say is wow! My surgery is thursday a day before yours! Best wishes to you!

Re: Going home day of surgery?

My surgery was last Thursday at 3 (lavh bso) and I went home Friday at 10am. I walked upstairs, took a shower, and went to bed!
I was glad that I had ice packs waiting at home- they've been a great help. I also slept sideways across the end of the bed the first night- the mattress was firmer and it was easier to get up.

Hey Catsarecool!

You're from my neck of the woods...I work in GP!

My doctor says outpatient, too. I was surprised but he said..."do it all the time. Don't worry, this ain't my first rodeo."

Maybe not, Doc...but you'll be riding a different horse this time so take care.

He also said I'd be back to work in two weeks. When do you expect to be back in the real world?

Blessings to you!
