      I was in the hospital for 1 over night stay. Plus, it's has to do with the type of insurance you have.

      I had a double mastectomy with expanders and sentinal lymph nodes and they only kept me in the hospital for 1 night. I was happy to go home but the pain meds that I got in the hospital were AWESOME!!!!

      I was told 1 to 2 days. Stayed another day because of reaction to pain meds. They did try to get me to leave day two...but by the third day I couldn't wait to leave. Take your pain meds, my expander hurt like heck.
