How long did your procedure take?  How long were you under?   I saw somewhere the average RNY takes 3 hrs, but haven't found anything on the Sleeve.

I just asked my husband (I had never thought to ask lol)... he said it was about two hours from the time they wheeled me into the OR to the time I left recovery. I'm guessing I was in recovery for somewhere between 30 minutes and an hour. So about an hour to 90 minutes would be right for me too.

I don't really remember, but I do remember it was shorter than they told us. I want to think the actual surgery was only 45-60 minutes. I THINK I saw my husband just 90 minutes after I was wheeled back and out of recovery... I'd say figure 2 hours start to finish, but ask your surgeon and hospital.

My best friend was actually my nurse and she told me that the actual surgery itself took 46 minutes. Not sure how long I was actually under. The whole thing probably took 1:30.

Mine was about 2 hours. Depends on the DR.
