Look at the top of this forum for "Hints from Members"

It's a HUGE list of all sorts of tips and tricks. I spent hours flipping through those pages and got a huge amount of really useful information right there.
Doesn't make much sense to list is all again here. Take a look - just super stuff in there.

Re: May 5, 2009 Hyst - advice

Here is My suggestion list.

Take it easy,
Get some soft pillows for your belly,
Get a belly band and flexible ice pack,
Get your recovery area set up,
Watch lots of movies,
Gas X is a God Send,
Stool Softeners are too (ask Doc first)
Have your favorite book handy,
Don't forget to get up and move as you can,
Don't forget to smile.
Read through the info on this site. It is invaluable.

Hi farmchic, and

Zev is right that the Hints from Members is helpful. The other place to go is our Pre-op Resources page. I got a lot of information and ideas from these two places and spent a lot of time on the Pre-op forum to find out how other women were feeling.

Let us know if there's anything in particular you're wondering about how to get through this journey. I'm sending you big
