Post- op essentials?

My surgery is Wednesday morning & I鈥檓 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 had a lot of back pain after surgery so a heating pad was a lifesaver! Good luck on Wednesday馃挆

  • 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鈥檇 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鈥檛 require lifting. Loosen all your medication caps because it鈥檚 hard to open them along with jars. 

    I didn鈥檛 have a huge appetite so I got lots of soup, popsicles, yogurt (with probiotics) it鈥檚 good while taking an antibiotic, applesauce. 

    I agree a heating pad will be very helpful. 

    Best of Luck!
