Mayo Clinic Connect
Does anybody know how long the hospital stay is for Intussusception Surgery
Hello @jackie55 ,
I’m glad you found Mayo Clinic Connect and I welcome you. I do not have experience with this disorder but I know there are a lot of different conditions which it occurs. It is more common in children than adults. It can be emergency surgery if certain conditions exist, such as if the blood supply is cut off or if there is obstruction. Sometimes it can be corrected with a type of enema. In the following case study the patient was released after 7 days post operative stay. This was a 2004 case study, at first glance, and because it is rare there may not be many actual cases documented on the internet. I hope this is helpful as I don’t know any of the circumstances in regards to your question. I would invite other Connect members to offer any opinion regarding to @jackie55 question.
Please read the above case study and let me know if this is similar to what you inquired about.
I don’t know that, but I do know that they can be asymptomatic. And if yours is, I’d make sure the surgery is necessary. According to a specialist at UCSF, it’s not as rare as they once thought: the sensitivity of current tests are showing this. And they sometimes resolve on their own. Mine did.

I’m tagging Connect member @connecticuthuskyfan, who wrote about intussusception in a previous post, and may have more insight for you. Here’s some information about intussusception and surgery from Mayo Clinic: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/intussusception/diagnosis-treatment/drc-20351457
Since Intussusception is the most common cause of intestinal obstruction, I’m tagging @nonnie1 @ginpene05 @rssanders @jgirlatlaw @justjane @eddiesrp @jimmymac @ron22 @bonitav @kag13 @idnas @loriel59, to see if they may have some thoughts or experiences to add.
@jackie55, we look forward to getting to know you; could you share a few more details? What symptoms do you have? How are you managing them?
It depends on so many factors. Ask your Doc. Good luck
