So surgery is in 30 hours and I just got most of my bag packed and ready to go. I have these things:

*CPap

*chapstick

*deodorant

*travel sized toiletries (shampoo, conditioner, my biotene, and soap)

*eye mask, small Dove lotion tin

*A change of panties

*hairbrush and pony tail holders

I plan on leaving in the clothes I come in with. All in all, i have a small Supernatural backpack that I've fit everything in surprisingly lol except the CPAP lol some of the stuff I'm taking is the same stuff I leave in there anyway lol. I use it as a purse so it can serve 2 purposes. Anything I need, I need to fit in it. Way less **** to keep up with. Oh and my travel pillow will be waiting for me in the car :) anyone else got anything to add to this?

Congratulations on your accomplishments and I'm so happy for you. If you have a comfort item or if you like aromatherapy, that can be a nice touch. Like I will take my flameless candle whenever my time comes, candles are soothing to me and my aromatherapy spray. I need those 2 things to keep my anxiety at bay. Please let us know how you are doing.

Hey! So I'm not sure if I'm overpacking but I also packed pads (my nurse said women tend to get their menses from stress and the pads at the hospital are super uncomfortable), body wipes and feminine wipes.

you probably won't need Shampoo and soap. I didn't take a shower while I was there == and if you do, they should have soap there. Although I guess it never hurts to bring them just in case. Biotene might be helpful, though - I remember having a really dry mouth

Im super excited for you- please post an update as soon as you're up to it. My date is July 3, just about 2 weeks away, and I'm slowly starting to feel the anxiety/ excitement too.

I'll be spending 2 nights in the hospital, so I plan on taking my phone charger. Music always calms me so I'll also be bringing along my earbuds in my backpack. Other than that, our backpacks are pretty similar.

Good luck to you!

I recommend an extra long phone cord. I bought one the day before and was glad I did. Made me more mobile in bed.
I was allowed to shower so I also used my toiletries, brush, lotion, lip balm, a hair clip, AirPods and a cardigan. And really comfy clothes that double as pjs so I looked decent and felt good. The rest of the time I was sleeping or talking with med team.

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

      2. ms.sss

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

      3. FluffyChix

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      7 days post revision... I am wiped out! I forgot about the energy depletion stage 
      Logically I know there is some fat left for use... But not much
