Yes I had surgery in morning first thing and left right after lunch to go home next day. They have it down to a science. Important things for early release seem to be getting up walking (I was up the night following surgery walking), passing gas (they told me I had to do that to start eating solid food), and slowed discharge from the drainage tube. I didn't feel rushed at all. I was ready to go home and rest away from hospital hub.bub...... hahaha.
My doctor told me the same thing and yes it happens and I am convinced a doctor that does it all the time and is an expert with a lot of experience is the key to a good fast recovery.
