A few pre-op planning tips

1. Tell your friends that you are having surgery and if they ask what they can do to help ask for some dinners that you can pop in the oven - should be ones that can be frozen in case you are not ready for food just after surgery.

2. Bring your biggest, loosest clothing to the hospital. You will have a lot of fluid in you and a swollen belly. It takes a couple weeks before you get your waistline back and ANYTHING that presses on your belly makes it sore.

3. If you can afford it have your immediate living area cleaned a couple times by a cleaning lady (Find one in the yellow pages). It is just so nice to have a clean house and you are not supposed to be pushing a vacuum!

4. Ask about an abdominal binder. If you don't get one as part of your going home stuff, order one from this web site. It really feels good to have your abdominal muscles supported as you heal. Great for the first few weeks when you move around the house and take a walk.

5. Pamper yourself anyway that you like best. You deserve it.
