Wondering if there is anything out there that will ease the process of post op recovery that I didn't know about??

I've seen several people say comfortable long dresses with pockets and soft, comfortable sports bras. Also have small medicine measuring cups available so you can accurately track your Fluid intake, and do it in small amounts.

For me, it was extra pillows! I pretty much lived in the recliner in my living room.

Well when I was In hospital I wished I’d had brought dry Shampoo because I was supposed to stay two nights and my hair gets oily. I even sent my husband to get it, but then I was released the next day anyways. I still wasn’t allowed to shower that day but at least I was home alone at that point. I didn’t have a bunch of pain though. Doubt I would’ve cared if I was in horrible pain.

Gas-x was helpful to relieve the gas pains. I also used a roller on my back to help as well. It worked to Relieved that upper back pain so I could get to sleep. I couldn’t do it on the floor so used it against the wall. Hot herbal tea felt good and I could drink those more easily.
oh and Benadryl cream- I had an awful reaction to the numbing medication that made my stomach so itchy. Good luck!
