At El Camino Hospital, your surgeon will meet with your family/support members and let them know how your surgery went while you are in recovery.
You’ll be taken directly to your private room from recovery. You’ll be sleepy but alert. Within 2 hours after your surgery our outstanding bariatric nursing team will get you up and walking. You can expect to watch TV, read or visit that evening.
Our new bariatric unit has size-appropriate furnishings throughout, including in your private room, which comes equipped with a television and Wi-Fi Internet connection. There are chairs for family members or friends, including a chair that opens into a small bed if you want them to spend the night--and they are most welcome to do so.
Depending on your procedure, you will stay in the hospital for one to three days after your weight loss surgery.
