Im so happy you're getting your operation finally !!!
Youve GOT this !!!

Bring plenty of reading material with you, a phone charger, maybe some water flavoring if you prefer flavored water ... clean underwear toothbrush hairbrush and a sweater ( hospitals can be cold !)

And get ready to walk walk walk every half hour and blow blow blow ( it really helps heal and recover faster ) ... your fellow patients probably wont be walking the halls but it helps SO much if you do what your doc recommends - no risk of painful blood clots for instance .

And don't worry if you feel woozy headed for a few weeks afterwards - its a side effect of the general anesthesia!

Were all rooting for you to be safe and heal quickly and comfortably !
