Things that I'll be taking to hospital



Recommended Posts

If I were you I'd just wear the same outfit to the hospital and from the hospital. Also you don't need all of that stuff honey, you're over packed. Blessings to you and good luck on your surgery! !

Thank for your response, but it gets a little redundant. I appreciate what was said but like I said thank for your opinion. But I don't need to keep hearing it... Now I have to add your opinion to something that wasn't directed towards you... Until now

Wow what an attitude. Best of luck with your sugery. We're supposed to support each other. You just might learn something from people who have already gone through this, and yes everyone's going to be different. I wish you all the best in the future, doesn't sound like you're going to have much of a support system on here with your attitude. . This is no walk in the park, and you can not do this without support. God bless

Why are you so upset over other members telling you what they found helpful when they went to the hospital? That is normally why one wold post on these forums, for suggestions from other. Guess you just wanted everyone to know that you can pack a hospital bag.

I am so sorry that you have gotten irritated with responses that you received from this post. We all have had some sort of experience whether it be pre or post surgery. I know for me, I enjoy sharing my experience to help others along their journey and I love to hear from others further along than I am. I really hope that you can understand most of us feel the same way. Just sharing our journey and supporting one another.

Good luck

Yay I rather be safe then sorry... I don't think I will be waring the same thing home; due to the fact that what I am waring to the hospital is tight fit-it pants and what I am waring home that outfit is much looser... I don't want to irritate my incision.

My date is the 16th, so wish me luck and blessing

Do what you feel is right for you! I brought everything above and then some!! I seriously am a beauty girl and work at the hospital where I had my bypass!! I thought... I'll be ready for all my visitors....well, I was obsessively consumed with getting my liquids in!! Between that and resting, and recovery, I used nothing. I just wanted to feel better and go home!! I did bring pjs and lounge wear, which I used a lot of for walking etc!

I am not going to keep hearing people indicate what I should or shouldn't bring when I expressed I did want to hear it... Instead people want to write what they brought to hospital... On this one I just wanted to hear you are prepared... Take my feeling into consideration not just everyone opinion.

Why are you being so defensive? Its an open forum people are just giving their opion.

I always pack more than needed as well because I like to be extra prepared. Then I don't use half of what I pack lol but it's better to be safe than anything else. Thanks to all of you for the insight and Congrats! :)

I didnt bring so much, just what I was told would be necessary. Ibrought my cpap machine, med card and ID, cell phone and charger, and a light jacket. I wore home what I wore to hospital and everything I needed was supplied. I had to wear their nonslip socks and the gown. Was given plenty of warm blankets and other things. You will sleep much of the time. I didn't even go on Facebook much. I just texted family and friends who knew and watched jeopardy a couple of times. I wanted to watch the Rio games but I had no energy for that. I was given heat packs, meds, and pretty much all that I really needed (even chamomile tea). I was even given a pillow to use in the car on the way home. It's now my car pillow when I go in the car (I'm 5 days past surgery). Best of luck on your surgery!!!

I also had my daughter bring me a pen and paper trying to keep up with my ounces and doing the breathing Spiro meter when the nurses would ask.

I didn't take much. I took my headscarf, a travel size hair spray, something to read, my phone and charger. All of it fit in my purse. Since my surgery was early in the morning. I wear the same outfit/ dress home because I only had it on for 30 minutes before I got to the hospital. Dress comfortably and pamper yourself and skin before going to the hospital.

      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.

      Week 5 Post Op Report

      What a journey! I am 5 weeks from surgery and a total of 24.4 pounds down!

      I feel amazing! I’ve incorporated a ton of walking and I’m using my Apple Watch to help me along! I have closed all three of my fitness rings for 11 days straight! Ok, so I am in LOVE with my Apple Watch. I've had it for almost a year and I am just now tapping into it's fitness power!

      I keep on top of my protein, vitamins and biotin!

      I struggle with water but I average about 50 ounces a day. I have only had one day where I had to “purge” because something did not agree with me. Tuna and my Tiny Tummy still do not agree so I’m going to leave it alone for a while!

      I walk on average a little more than 3 miles a day for my exercise but manage to get in at least 13,000-17,000 steps a day depending on how my schedule goes.

      I get up every hour and walk around for at least five minutes. Then if I’m watching a show I get up and walk in place during the commercials!

      I meet with my doc this week for a progress report.

      I have one more week before I graduate from soft foods to the final phase!

      I’ve got my cookbooks ready, my food scale ready and my measuring plates ready!

      I could NOT be more happy with my progress! I feel amazing and I’m grateful to have this tool!

      None Scale Victory: My rings on my finger are spinning!

        Sabrina, you are doing so well. I'm truly inspired and equally excited for you. The view you shared is breathtaking and relaxing, I'm in love with the ocean. Please keep sharing. Where did you find the trackers and how do I access them? My date is approaching the 31st, I'm in liquid diet mode. I see my surgeon on the 17th. Any advice?

      2. SabrinaGoddess

        You got this sis! You totally do.
        The ocean is so peaceful. Some days I get blessed with seeing whales, dolphins and seals. It is truly amazing.

        You can go to under our name at the top left section and click "TICKERS" you can create them there. Then when you lose weight you just go to "my surgery" and change your weight and they will adjust.

        On the liquids, do sugar free pop-cycles. They are more like a treat than a liquid and they count as 2 ounces each! Liquids not the funnest part of our journey but who cares....LOL. I do like the IsoPure clear liquid protein drinks, you can get them at GNC. The flavors are ok. I also LOVED Kettle and FIre Broth and Epic Broths so I drank them all the time, it's good for you. It's BONE BROTH. Kinda pricey but the good stuff usually is.

      3. Krimsonbutterflies

        Thank you for the encouragement/positivity!!! I'm going to conquer this liquid phase, moment by moment. I also appreciate the mini tutorial of how to get the ticker. I'm thinking of starting status updates after my pre-op visit with the surgeon on Friday. I really enjoy the personal perspective and experience being shared, without feeling like the thread is being dominated. I look forward to how each person is approaching the wls lifestyle. Thank you lady, good night. Happy Whale watching. I love seeing the dolphins at Hermosa Beach.
