Worried about blood clots tt . What did everyone do to prevent them other then walking and kiwi?  Has anyone ever died from STRESS before the surgery cause I think I'm gonna be a first! :). Here's what I got so far toilet riser, walker, backmax contour bed system, crackers,gauze, tape, neosporian bromelian, arnica, jello,cough drops, bottled water, multi vitamin, colace, MOM, Tylenol, breast pads( people say they use the after surgery)extra binder, soirts bea that sips in front, dial body wash, body pillow , memory foam pillow, bath wipes, books!!!!! What am I forgetting my doctor didn't give me scripts yet ....probably cause I stay one night at the hospital so I guess I will get them filled there before I leave. My procedure is a drainless tt and bl. Help I'm forgetting something!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You sound perfectly set and like A1 said, if you forgot something, send someone to go get it for you. I came home an hour after surgery! I would have loved to stay overnight! The nurses will take care of everything. I hate kiwi, so the only thing I have done was walk, alot. Every 2 hours or so and wear those compression socks they give you during surgery. I am post op day 5 and I have stopped wearing them now. Drink LOTS of water (which was no problem for me, I had severe dry mouth!)

First and foremost - Calm Down! Take a deeeeeep breath and just relax. It appears that you have all your ducks in a row, and if you have forgotten something, send someone out to get it for you! You are lucky you get to stay in a hospital overnight - i came home the same day! They (hospital staff) will certainly let you know if you need anything else before you go home. Good Luck with your surgery! We'll see you on the flat side!

I feel like you did! My surgery is a few weeks away. Glad you are done. How was the anesthesia? I'm afraid of not waking up and blood clots

The anesthesia was fine I told them before hand that I get serve nausea (which I do )and they took extra precautions . So tell the anesthesiologist that. Are you staying at the hospital overnight? If you are they put these things on your legs the massage them if not cvs sells compression stockings wear them for 5 to 7 days also eat kiwi 3 times a day. Also take bromelian it helps with that and healing. I'm post op one day so I'll keep you posted. Also ask them to give you the night before for anxiety. You be fine :) sending happy thoughts and prayers
