I hope all goes well for you, and that you are home for the weekend if you feel like it. Don't let them send you home until you feel up to it.

We will be watching for news, here to help if we can, and keeping you in mind.

I think if you can stay in the hospital 3 days min. with insurance coverage will be the best. In hospital with Comfortable motorized bed, IV liquid to you body w/o drinking a lot of water, all pain killer can be injected in IV, they check your health condition frequently,give you all medicine per schedule, 1 push button somene will be there to help you get up for walk or go to toilet, drain your urine and side blood suction ball. Hope you house is not too far from hospital.
At home your wife will be busy with you for the first 3 days. After 3 days when you feel little better than go home will be good!

This is my opinion and I'm lucky and happy that doctor let me stay 3 nighs, but I have to ask them. If not, they want to kick me out next day.

As a past Davinci recipient....I can suggest that you should try to walk as soon as you are able post surgery to relieve your body of the gas. It does help. Hope you get a pretty nurse :-)
