To whom it may concern,
I have a few questions about same day gastric sleeve surgery. I’m getting the gastric sleeve this summer and my surgeon offers outpatient bariatric surgery. He is giving me the option to leave the hospital the day of my gastric sleeve and I want to make sure that’s safe.
How will this affect my safety during my recovery after my gastric sleeve? If I have such a short hospital stay for my gastric sleeve, am I at higher risk? I know some people stay at the hospital up to 2-3 days, so I’m confused why she’s encouraging me to be released the same day.
