Hi DreamBigForever to HysterSisters!

You do not need too much for your stay. Here are articles that will give you some ideas:
10 Essentials to Pack for Your Hysterectomy
What to Take to the Hospital for Hysterectomy

For my 3 1/2 day stay, I wore the same clothes I planned to go home in. I would recommend the following:
Cell phone charger and cell phone (a must)
LIGHT reading material
Underwear (although they will probably provide you with mesh panties for the first day or two)
Robe (you will be walking the halls soon after surgery)

I did not need toiletries, as the hospital provided all of them. The hospital provided slippers - special ones that were the non-slip, footsie-type.

Re: What Not to Forget for Hospital Stay

Excellent advise above!
What I'd say don't forget is: squishy ear plugs (the type tradies use) to block out noise, & your favourite lip balm.. Apart from comfy clothing, they are the things I'd say not to forget!
Best of luck DreamBigForever!

In addition to earplugs, don't forget an eye mask, to block out those bright hospital lights while you're sleeping. I would also recommend a pen and notepad, for writing down any important instructions, which you might not remember while you're still "under the influence." Best wishes for a successful surgery and a smooth recovery!
