I am scheduled for my BR surgery April 5th. I would like to start getting the things I will need to be comfortable and to help my healing process. Can you ladies make a list of the things I will need so I am all set when I get home. I will have very little support and be by myself most of the time. I hope I can take care of the dog, cats and chickens properly! I bought 2 flannel button-up pajama shirts so far. I'm sure I will need more. PLEASE help me be prepared for this healing time by myself!!! Everything from clothes I should have, to meds, personal products, foods, to what I should wear the day of surgery and the day after, etc Thank you so much!

A couple things that helped me a lot where to keep me comfortable sleeping on my back for over a month. I got one of those pillow things with arms and one of those things that support your neck that people take on planes. And lots of pillows. Since i was halfway between laying down and sitting a lot of the time, pillows under my tailbone and legs made it more comfy.

Thank You!

Will I need lots of button-up shirts for the first week? I dont hardly have any...I usually wear tshirts and sweatshirts.

When can you put something over your head?
