stuffed animal in recovery room



Recommended Posts

I hear some patients get a stuffed bear in the recovery room after the surgery from a nurse. Is that True?

If so that's very sweet. :confused:

Awww, lol. I am thinking that probably varies by hospital, and if you stay overnight, right?

I received a Teddy Bear from Cleveland Clinic. It was a called a "cough teddy bear" it was very hard, so when I needed to cough I would squeeze the teddy bear and it helped the pain. The nurse wouldn't let me get discharged until I had a productive cough.

I got one too. Used it for the coughing exercise (trust me, it helps a lot) and to wedge against my left side while I slept for the first month so I wouldn't roll over on my port incision.

Alta Bates Hospital's bariatric unit in Okland gives out stuffed teddy bears so when you cough it does not hurt as much.:smile2:

I got a koala bear in the recovery room from dr Tersigni, To cough and stuff. However I found a pillow worked much better lol. I like the koala however as a reminder that im on this great journey and the great staff that helped me get here :wink2:

I didn't, but I got the best Jello. Yum yum yum. :-) lol

I also got a free hair brush, tooth brush, cathader, nose canula, and morphine.

I dont know why but for some reason I had the best vegetable broth there lol

Must just have been the drugs they had me on.

I was just happy they knocked me out for the surgery. And hours after I woke up, the TV had a good channel so I watched a horror flick in my room.:bolt:
