Surgery TOMORROW! Is there anything I'm forgetting?



Recommended Posts

I'm so close! I'm planning on taking some measurements and before pictures tonight. I'm going to pack comfy loose pajamas, a robe and slippers, my own pillow, headphones and a phone charger, dry mouth spray, gas-x, and toiletries. Is there anything else I should be doing or packing? Would love the advice.

I don't think I packed half of that stuff, I was asleep and if I wasn't asleep I was walking around the ward (so pajamas are a definite yes!). You're going to do great! Best wishes on a speedy recovery.

a heating pad, extra long phone charging cord, eye mask (to sleep), ear plugs, a white noise machine (cut all those beeping noise out), socks with grips on the bottom, always say thank you to the hospital staff for helping you, make sure those slippers have grips on the bottom and always wear sandals in the restroom/shower area. Hospitals are not always very clean. Just FYI! oh bring a camera to document your journey!

Honestly I only brought myself, my phone and bi-pap. as soon as I was checked in they made me change, so my clothes were still clean. I wore flip flops, wide leg yoga pants, bra and t-shirt. I didn't wear the bra home due to an incision from hernia repair.

Best of luck!

I was glad to have my iPad. I also downloaded Netflix & Amazon movies so I wouldn’t have to rely on the hospital WiFi.

You might want chapstick and lotion.

Chapstick! You’re mouth and lips get really dry from the surgery and not drinking. I brought a robe to cover up when taking my walks.

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
