Really you won't need much. You basically stay in your hospital gown for the two days you are in the hospital. Just make sure you wear loose clothing so when you are released you will be comfortable on the ride home. Hospitals provide the necessities like tooth brushes and tooth paste etc. I didn't take much with me at all and I was fine. Good luck and you will do fine! :)

I packed my phone and charger, chapstick, slippers, pajamas, magazines, and a few Snacks for my hubby. The only thing I used was my pajamas (so I could walk the halls) and my phone. Everyone you need the hospital will provide you with. They will give you nausea meds, they give you socks with the grips on the bottom. Don't bother bringing much because you will not be awake long enough to use it. Oh, and good luck. You're gonna love the surgery :)

My hospital did not provide anything such as toothbrush and other necessities other than the footie socks with rubber grips. I recommend chapstick, your phone and phone charger, a magazine, small hand lotion that smells nice, wet wipes, toothbrush, toothpaste, deodorant, and slippers if you already have some. For your clothes to leave the hospital, make sure your pants have a soft, loose waistband.

I brought a pj top and robe, but they didn't do any good because the IV prevented me from being able to use them.

Best wishes to you!! Phone and charger are a must!! Tooth brush, toothpaste, deodorant, good book...expect to walk every 3-4 hours. If you are walking on carpet, foots are ok, but I preferred my Nike thongs. I also loved having the Biotene mouth rinse to keep my mouth from getting so dry. They should give you gowns that cover you completely, too. Good Luck!!

I bought a robe and I put my right arm through the robe and draped the other side over my shoulder and I felt better than if I had just had a hospital gown.

      Went to see the Star Wars movie yesterday. (Glad I waited as no one else was in the cinema for the midday session - yes!) Hadn’t been to the cinema for a few months and OMG I suffered the most terrible butt pain.  So uncomfortable. Started after 30 mins. Was in the premium cinema so grabbed a cushion to sit on but it didn’t help. Ended up sitting sideways in the chair, stretched out on an ottoman. Soooo super glad no one else was there. Sometimes I do miss my old butt fat cushioning... but not really.

      I have a surgery date, I have my next doctor appointment on Wed and then Thursday I start my 2 week liquid pre-op diet. I am very nervous right now. I know it's going to be a tough mind game.
