! I am sure pre-op should go well for you. Remember, you are only in the castle for a short time, and will not really feel up to doing alot then, so do not bring too much with you. You can always have someone else bring more later, if you really need it.
I brought a robe for walking, but no pj's. I knew there might be blood and drainage and stuff, and I was right. My IV bled all over my hospital gown; was glad it was not my own. I did bring socks and slippers tho.
I did bring my own pillow(s) from home. It is more comforting and also hospital pillows are not all that comfy. And you can never have too many pillows after surg. (I even took one to the bathroom with me to hold on lap. Really helped support tummy)
I also brought lip balm. Your lips get very cracked and dry, as does your mouth. Ice chips help too.
I did NOT bring alot of busywork, or books etc. It is very hard to concentrate and focus after surg, esp with the pain meds. Mags with good pics may be enough. The time goes fast and you rest most of time, or concentrate on walking and going to bathroom or passing gas. (hee-hee)
Many recommend eye mask to block lights from bothering you while sleeping, and/or ear plugs to block noise. And some also brought music player and earphones to soothe and comfort.
I also brought my own maxipads and granny panties for any bleeding or discharge as the hospital ones do not have sticky side.
Toothbrush, toothpaste, comb, ponytail holder, and facewash is about the rest of it, unless you need some very lite make up and lipstick. But you may not feel up to putting on much.
Some also brought a fav pic or stuffed animal.
Obviously your dh or whoever is there during surg should have a list of phone numbers to call when you are out of surg.
And last, but not least, a goody or "suck up" basket for the nurses and staff. This is inexpensive small basket or box that you fill with inexpensive individually wrapped candy/chocolate and even small purse hand lotions. They LOVE it, and anything that gets on their good side and keeps them coming into your room is great!!
Others may have even more or better suggestions. I hope you can try to do something relaxing or fun in the meantime before your surg. You will soon be joining us on the other side with your beautiful crown!
