    Hiya, had my pre op appointment this morning for surgery next Thursday 15th August. Was told it might not necessarily include an overnight stay. Has anyone else been discharged the same day? I don’t want to get my hopes up I could be out that night and then have to stay. Just wondering how many people have been discharged same day! Thanks

    Hi

    I had my band in January and was discharged the same afternoon..it took 4 times as long to get home because of heavy snowfall!

    hopefully you will not have that problem!

    Hope all goes well for you

    Ok thank you! Hopefully I will get home that same day, I have a 14 month baby and have never been away from him over night x

    There really are no hard and fast rules – there never is with surgery! Having said that, the staff/team will be keen to stick to the schedule so you will go home the same day if everything is ok for you to do so. Don’t forget that in hospitals, if an emergency arises, everything else has to take a back seat.

    You must be so excited!! I loved that bit – waiting for it all to happen. It was like Christmas 😉
