    Big knickers.you want the waistband way above your wound for comfort.

    Bottled water and plenty of it, when the nurses where busy my bottled water was a god send.

    face wipes and cleanding wipes with a roll on deodrsnt,

    I couldnt get out if bed for 2 dsys due to catheter and wound drain so these were refreshing.

    GOOD LUCK xxxx

    Hi Denise

    I'm due in on Friday 9th Jan for TAH also!

    Funnily enough, I just went upstairs to start trying to pack, and although I had a list, it seemed to me like I will need two bags, one for on the day with basics such as dressing gown, slippers, pads etc, and one for the next day and onwards, with ipod, phone, chargers, nighty, magazines etc, but I must confess I'm not really sure.  Are you going into a general ward or a side ward on your own do you know?

      Will you be home again before your op, or do you stay in from now until your op?  Did they say how long you  might be in for?

      Thinking of you.

      I'm not looking forward to it either.
