Re: hospital stay

every pre-op is different. i didn't have to drink anything or do any bowel prep. My cut my food and drink intake at midnight the night before. My surgery was also an outpatient. So I didn't take much (actually I took too much), but I did take my iPad, cellphone and chargers, pen, paper, stamps and envelopes and a paperback book in addition to a hair scarf and a sports bra. Don't forget carmex and pads.

Wear pants with no buttons or zippers. Because of post-op swelling you won't be able to zip or button your pants and loose shirts! And comfortable shoes!

Re: hospital stay

wow! thanks so much to everyone for all the responses! i am feeling a little calmer and more prepared. i have decided to just use the supplies that the hospital provides. i hadn't even thought about walking the hospital floor. i am quite nervous about all this but ready to get it done! i am a little nervous about my 4 year old. will i be able to take care of him by myself come next week? my husband took off work thurs and fri but he is out of vacation time and we can't afford for him to take off without pay. i have 4 children but the other 3 are older and in school all day. how long should i allow until i can take care of him myself??
