hiya

mjust curious as to whats the norma lentgh of stay following anterior and prosteria repair?

Dr had said 1 maybe 2 nights but when all my paper work came from hospital they said length of stay is 3 nights?

I am in Uk and going through Bupa, so now just curious if they put that as a precaution or will i really be there 3 night?

thanks

    Hi mosnippy my paper work said 1 night but once admitted was told that was an error and that I would be there for 2 to 3 nights, as it turned out I was allowed to go home at 7.30pm on the 3rd day, this was due to my bladder not emptying enough once the cathater was removed.

    I know some BUPA hospitals seem to keep people in longer, but when I had my op on the NHS they'd told me I'd be in for one night, then gave me an information sheet that said two or more but then I found out I was fit enough to be put on the 'fast track' system so I was just in for one, so I guess the answer to this is to ask:-)  Or maybe they'll see how you are at the time and if you're well enough to go, they'll let you go.  Maybe it's got something to do with being able to demonstrate that bladder and bowels are working fine, too.

      I was very happy to go home the day after my op (all was working very well and I felt great) but I have to say, my time in the NHS hospital at Lincoln was superb!  I couldn't fault the treatment at all and I was so well looked after there and my goodness - the food - WOW - I never though I'd be impressed with hospital food!  I reckon Jamie Oliver had done his bit there LOL!  But my husband was brilliant too, and looked after me so well when I got home.  He'd even put my socks on for me LOL!

      Really, it wasn't scary at all.  My only concern on the day was if they'd have time to do the anterior repair as well as the hysterectomy because they were running late and I was getting worried they'd say there wasn't time (they'd sort of forgotten to book in long enough for repairs, and ended up working later in theatre on me than they should have done, to squeeze that in too) so once they called me to get changed for theatre, you've never seen anyone move so fast LOL!  But as I've said before, someone asked me if I was worried about the op and my reply was 'not at all - I'm not doing it - I'll just be asleep' LOL!  But just accept the help when you need it and enjoy the relaxation - prepare for it with hobbies you can do sitting down and resting:-))))  I bought Christmas presents online while I was relaxing, so it worked out well:-)))  I wish you well and wish you a good speedy recovery:-)))

      Wasn't hungry!!!!?????  I've NEVER not been hungry LOL!  I wonder if my hospital had a very good chef then, too, even though they were under 'special measures'.

      I would order homemade tomato soup (absolutely delicious) and sandwiches. I had the soup my husband had the sandwiches. I could have ordered fillet steak, roast chicken etc but just couldn't face it.

      That sounds VERY good.  The meal I remember well was a really big beautiful piece of cod, perfectly cooked, with parsley sauce and mashed potatoes and green beans.  I can't remember what was for pudding but it was nice.
