Re: Packing for TVH

I did get a pillow pet to pack and a fleece night gown for home. Not sure my normal sleep things would be as comfortable. Might have to look into pj bottoms for around the house.
Thanks again for all the info and advice, it is greatly appreciated.

Re: Packing for TVH

I am two weeks postop from a TAH. I had yo stay for 5 nights because of blood clot issues mostly. I took lots of underwear, sports bra, robe, slippers (hospital socks only came in Xlg), face wipes, lotion, chapstick, toothbrush and paste, phone n charger, Kindle, comb, hair ties, shampoo and my own pads for bleeding. Hospital will give you supplies but it is cheap stuff and I wanted my own. Pads are huge and too bulky there. Underwear with some support works best. Gowns are ok but thin, so sports bra made me feel less exposed. I even got two bras with front zippers that are awesome.
