Post- op essentials?
My surgery is Wednesday morning & I’m running to the store today to grab a pillow/wedge & some last minute things. Stretch mark cream, front zip sports bra.. Anything else you ladies found extremely helpful post-op? :)
I just made sure I had lots of pillows to prop me up. I had a little set up right by my spot on the sofa with the remote, phone charger, meds, drink etc. I bought some coloring books bc I knew I’d be bored but I was pretty tired so I mostly slept and watched tv.
Also be sure you have a few ice packs. I was doing on 20 min. Off 40min.
Id advise having ALL house work caught up, laundry done, and then everything in your fridge/cabinets on a shelf that doesn’t require lifting. Loosen all your medication caps because it’s hard to open them along with jars.
I didn’t have a huge appetite so I got lots of soup, popsicles, yogurt (with probiotics) it’s good while taking an antibiotic, applesauce.
I agree a heating pad will be very helpful.
Best of Luck!Reply
