Hi Jeff,

They'll need to keep you after the surgery overnight so they can monitor you...but then you have to leave by 10am...I am unsure if they'll let you leave early. You might ask Marcia what protocol is. For the ride home, I'd make sure you have plenty of meds...I took a 6 hour flight home the next day and it was probably the most painful experience I've ever had (a lot to do with the lack of space on planes). Make sure you've got lots of pillows with you so you can ride in more comfort.


When I had surgery last Feb there was another guy I shared a room with who left at about 9 p.m. Friday night (the night of the surgery). I'm pretty sure he had the Pelvic Floor Repair as well. He may have been a special case. One of the Interns did come by to check on me Saturday morning before I left. I don't know why you couldn't sleep in a hotel and come back to Dr Meyers office the next morning if they want to check on you.

Good luck Jeff.
