    Hi Denise,

    Your final pre op appointment is the place to ask, but you will need PJ's, slippers, books to keep you occupied. They may advise sanitary towels for any post op bleeding..and I would advise joggers to go home in, you will want comfortable and loose clothing. I still cannot tolerate jeans 4 weeks post op..I arranged visitors, so that I could keep up my morale..you will sleep lots anyway, and rest, but I took my PC tabet in, to keep in touch with the outside world, and read the news etc whilst I was resting up..I hope all go's well..

    do not forget toiletries and tissues. Also chargers for your phone/tablet. Does your hospital charge for the tv? if so monney for that. Your robe and maybe some fruit sweets to suck?

      I had my paid private and Iam like you love to talk to people. So I did miss that because I was in my own room TV own bathroom and nice food lol not that I did eat much. But I did miss the people. If I could of gone on a ward I would of. But I needed to gave my op ASAP as it was taking over my life. So that's why I went private. 

      Hope that helps samx

    It maybe nerves but they will check for infection if you ask them too. I myself was convinced I had a chst infection it was only nerves though. Ask away if you need too

    Make sure you take big pants that are bigger then your usely size. Because you do swell up ans don't won't nothing on your scar.go for nighty s then pj's they are more comfortable. Ans to come home I put on a long loose dress. Take a couple of flannels they are good to help you wash because it's very hard work just to have a wash I sat on a chair to wash myself.

    Good luck with your op let us no how you get on

    Samx
