BRING a plastic back scratcher to the hospital....everytime I had An itch I would have paid a million dollars for one.

Make sure you read and understand your post-op eating plan....Don't wait until you get home from the hospital to try to figure out what you're supposed to be eating (drinking)....So read your plan and if there is anything you don't understand ask your surgeon or NUT before hand so you can be prepared after surgery...

Bring a phone charger with a long cord to the hospital....I bought on that was 10ft....it worked perfect.

Good luck!!!

I would say be prepared for anything in the moments/days immediately post-op. don't be shocked or disheartened if you wake up from surgery feeling differently to what you were expecting. You WILL get through it all :) Goodluck

Agree with inner surfer girl - b we st tip I know is to walk as much as possible. Prevents blood clots, also if ask you if want SCDs on legs in your hospital -also prevents blood clots. In nursing school so this is a preventative for any surgery. First time I had SCDs on my legs & I actually liked them -felt like leg nassage. Also don't wait til pain is too bad before take pain meds but I really didn't think pain was bad after surgery - kind of felt like just worked out my abs too much (was sore feeling). Just like others said do everything they advise & will do great. Best of luck to you.
