    November sleevers!

    My surgery is Nov 14th. I am starting my pre op diet on 10/31/17. The broth I am going to go with is the sam's club organic those are good I like them. I think that is pretty cool that you made your own. For the hospital I am packing my phone/phone charger, comfy clothes to go home, slippers and gas x. The hospital i'm having my surgery at they give a travel bag that has toothbrush, soaps, roll on, and things like that. I don't wanna take too much into the hospital because I am a germaphobe if I can't wash it it does not need to be there. As time is getting closer I am starting to feel nervous.
  18. Hey guys I came across this website that help you in getting the insurance to pay for your protein shakes. I have not personally use them because it is only for POST OP not pre op. Thought I would just throw this out there something to have in your pocket and pull out when need ed. Have a great day. http://www.insurenutrition.com/category_list.php?parent_id=24&cid=28
