I love and continue to use 4 weeks post op these things called flushable wipes. They are like baby wipes except for adults. Walmart makes generic brands brand by equate. Cottinelle and one other company make some. They come scented and unscented. You can get them in the health and beauty section at walmart. The equate brand are $1.26 for a pack of 40, the brand name one are about $1.40. They make cleanup easy and are much nicer than dry toilet paper. Lynn

I continue to use the wet wipes, they are great. I also still use my heating pad and grabber stick to pick up things.

Dont forget pads in case you have some spotting after surgery.

I found my body pillow very useful. It helped with sore hips and such.

Lip balm, they give you medicene to dry your mouth and your lips are very dry, that balm will feel good.
Cough syrup and or cough drops, just in case, like me 4 days out you get one of those nasy coughing jags that dont stop. HORRIBLE, and that there to help you can really help.
Squishy pillow to tuck under belly, on belly, beside sore section.
a comfy set of loose jammies and robe and a wonderful soft and comfy throw to lay over you for the naps.
Istayed in my robe till my one week appt, and loose pants after.
Sometimes you just dont want anything touching your skin.
You deserve it all!!!!!

oh ya, the maxi pafs are helpful for spotting, but also to lay across your incision for some padding and comfort and to catch drainage from the site.
