Re: Pajamas

I never used the ones i packed just because between the iv line and monitors i couldnt get them on anyway. I did get to use my robe after the iv was out. Actually I ended up not using most of what I packed, the hospital wanted me to use the slipper socks they have, couldnt concentrate to read, did use lip balm, cell phone, those new little disposable toothbrushes and hair bands.

Re: Pajamas

I have some new pajamas I was going to take but I have a feeling that as Peaches said, I'll never bother with them. I'm guessing that by the time you're ready to care about your own pajamas, you're going to be heading home. I will bring a robe too though. I think it's nice just having something of your own to wear.

Re: Pajamas

I bought a over sized gown to slip on. I will only be a 23 hour admit so I figure about the time I get up and dress they will ship me home.

Re: Pajamas

I took PJ's and didn't wear them. The gown they had me in was comfy and thick, so I wasn't self conscious walking the halls in it. I even wore their mesh undies as they were comfy too.

Re: Pajamas

Just packed my bag of clothes to go home in and pads (didn't need them since I didn't have any bleeding afterwards). I wore the hospital gown.

Re: Pajamas

Honestly, the only things you may need is a comb, your identification and insurance card, and a cell phone. I had a small bag packed and didn't use anything except those items. Hospital gown was easier because of the IV's (the sleeves have snaps) and it was nice and warm and oversized so nothing was exposed. The hospital also provided me with thick socks to wear while walking, toothbrush and paste, lotion, lip moisturizer and anything else I may have needed.

I also brought a magazine and that was a waste...couldn't concentrate enough to read. I watched TV instead...

Re: Pajamas

I agree with leaving the pajamas at home. The IV made it impossible to wear anything but their hospital gowns. I had the opposite experience with their gowns though, they didn't cover much (maybe because I am smaller)...lots exposed. Was happy I brought my robe to drape around me.

I also brought my own slippers, my cell phone and a magazine, all of which I used. It was too difficult to get to my bag so I just used the hospitals toothbrush, toothpaste, etc.

Good luck!

Re: Pajamas

I must agree with all of these ladies. I took a gown, but never wore it because of the IV. By the time the IV came out, I was perfectly happy with the hospital gown and hospital slippers. I did use my own mouthwash, toothbrush, and toothpaste, but thats only because the DH was there to get them out of the bag for me. Otherwise, I would have used everything provided by the hospital.

Re: Pajamas

Thanks everyone. I threw in some pj pants, just in case. I wore those with the hospital gown when I was in for asthma in March.

Think I am all ready for tomorrow. Drank that joyful bowel prep a couple of hours ago. Joy~ pure joy~
