After reading several different post op stories and hearing of different lengths of stays I thought I'd ask the question. Besides the fact I'm sitting here at 12:30am with a burning stomach and sore ribs and can't think of anything better to do! So here goes.

I had Lap. surgery 6-06 and had to stay 3 days and 2 nights. One of which was fighting with a gastro tube in my nose. Yuck!

My first Nissen was done 5-30-08 and I was in the hospital for 4 days for that one. My second redo was on 1-19-09 and I was in for 5 days due to a large hernia behind my heart that complicated the surgery and recovery.
P.S. also 8 hours on the operating table makes for a really sore behind.... LOL

IMHO, I would think it depends on the procedure you have performed, how well you recover, any complications, your age and any underlying health problems plus your physician's assessment of when you are ready to be safely released to home.

I know that was not a lot of I probably should have said I don't know for sure. turn

Take care and  I am sorry your sitting there in pain.
