Oh how exciting! I am packing a neck pillow. It might be too hard to lay down so I usually use a neck pillow to sleep with sitting up. Pack you flip fops, face wash, lotion and your own tooth brush and paste. Hope you have a fast recovery and give a update :)

Good morning. I haven't gone through the surgery yet but I wanted to wish you the best of luck! Congrats!

personally, I'd just bring your phone and a charger. And maybe a pillow to put over your stomach on the ride home. Wear baggy clothes when you go - and you can wear them home, too. Maybe a clean pair of undies. The hospital will have everything you need (hospital gown, non-skid socks - I think mine even gave me a disposal toothbrush and a small tube of toothpaste to use). A lot of us just end up sleeping most of the time we're there.

some people bring Biotin mouth spray - so I did as well - but I don't think I used it. I pretty much just slept....

Phone, charger, and chapstick was pretty much all I needed! You will basically sleep for 18 hours, then it will be time to go home! LOL!!

Gas x.. they will want you to walk, but I was too dizzy to get out of bed, and the hospital claimed they didn’t have any.. and a small pillow/ stuffed animal to hold at your side when you cough, sneeze, pass gas etc!

I strongly suggest a pillow to hold over your stomach for the ride home!

I didn't need anything but my toothbrush/toothpaste, phone and charger. I didn't need gas x or PJ's, pillows or blankets or a change of clothes. You can go home in what you wore to the hospital. They give you non slip socks so you don't need slippers either. I did bring a book but too tired to read.

I brought a robe, long socks and my laptop!! No one else was allowed in my room because of CoVid so I was all by myself for HOURS... the laptop helped so much!

Man y’all did a thorough job packing. I went with a cellphone charger, lip balm and cellphone. I stayed for 36ish hours which I slept most of it away.

I've had 3 surgeries in the last 2 yrs and it didn't matter what I packed I didn't need anything other than my phone and a long charger. My current surgery, I'm 9 days post -op from my first round of plastic surgery, I took comfortable jammies to wear home because I didn't want to wear them into the hospital. The hospital provided everything I needed. I only spent one night for my RNY and hip replacement but 2 nights for my plastics which consisted of brachioplasty, and 360 lower body lift- butt lift with fat transfer, Abdominoplasty (I didn't need muscle tightening), panniculectomy and monsplasty.
