In Tues night (operated on Wed) - out Sat morning. All part of the 'out of town' service provided by Dr. Blackley's team here in NZ. By leaving hospital in the weekend, transport logistics - flying home, pick up etc was more convenient for us.

In Monday night surgery Tuesday morning. Left Hospital Saturday morning. Physio said there was no reason I could not leave Thursday, but nurse said they don't like to let you go unless the wound is dry. Mine was still weeping a bit. it still was a little on saturday to be honest.

Surgery Thursday morning, left Wednesday afternoon. From what I understand that's longer than most patients get, though I felt I was still struggling with certain aspects. Particularly the stairs as I needed more help when I got home.

Was scheduled to stay one day but ended up with an extra day because my bladder didn't wake up from the anesthesia and might have exploded without a catheter. Not fun but I survived.

I am thinking another category to select from could be included here. "Less than a day" perhaps. My operation was done in the morning, and I left the hospital around 6:00 pm the same day. No overnight. I was more than happy to not spend the night in the hospital, and I think my insurance company loved it as well.

I had hip resurfacing with Dr Gross as an outpatient.  Personally, in my situation, if I had it to do over again - I'd op for a hospital stay.  I was in way too much pain and we ended up having to stay at the hotel longer anyway.
