I am planning on having the VSG in September and was wondering how long I will be in the hospital for.

Sorry I do not know about the sleeve.  The sleeve is new.  For the RNY, they keep you overnight and release you on the next day.

Yes, VSG is the sleeve.  It's new and I don't think many people on here have had that surgery but I think the hospital stay would be similar to the RNY.

You are correct! The average length of stay for a Sleeve patient is typically an overnight stay just like RYGB.

Just had it done.  Reported to the hospital at 830am on Monday and was discharged at 500pm the next day.
