Depending on your case you will be in the operating room for 3 to 7 hours. It is a complex operation and by no means rushed by your surgeon. They want to make sure everything is done exactly so you don't have to go back to the OR. The most important part is you recover and drink fluids, not water, but gatoraide and such. Speak to your surgeon about your procedure. It may sound scary, but most that have had it done, do not regret it by any means.
