If your doctor's office gave you a choice to have your surgery (small bowel resection) on a Friday or a Monday, which would you choose? What are the pros and cons of either option?
For me, Friday is appealing because if I were to return to work on a future Monday, it would add a couple of weekend days to the recovery timeframe.
However, Monday is appealing because the doctor doing the surgery would be in the hospital every day that week during my recovery - whereas on a Friday I would be seeing a different doctor on Saturday and Sunday.
If I go on a Friday, it may be easier for out of town family to visit in the hospital - however, on a Monday I would likely be heading home the following weekend, and they could better visit/assist at my first weekend home.
