Hospital packing help!



Recommended Posts

Hi. WOOHOO! You're time has finally come. I packed 2 pair of comfy pants and tops (and was also wearing the same), plenty of underwear (wasn't sure how long I'd be there and I always pack double of what I need), deodorant, toothbrush, toothpaste, washcloths, and a bath sheet from home. I only used the clothes I was wearing and one pair of underwear plus toiletries bc I was in and out in about 22 hours. I packed my own medium firmness pillow which I intentionally left in the car bc I didn't want to mistakenly leave it there (like I did the at the overnight sleepy test) and I used it by placing it against my stomach on the ride home. I saw the tip posted on here by another member and it helps. Oh, I did pack socks too but didn't need them bc I left hospital socks on.

I have stuffed animals the right size so will take one of them. When I had my gallbladder out in the bad old days(30+ years ago) when everything was open incisions I took a chicken pillow, about the size of a couch throw pillow. Chickie became my best friend for a while, try sneezing or coughing with a 5-6 inch incision. Hurts enough you'll confess to things you didn't even do!
