So I am having surgery May 27th....tummy tuck, hernia repair and brachio. I am reallly not sure what to expect for recovery and what I will need. I am unfortunatly gonna have to go to surgery by myself as I have nobody that can go with me. What should I bring to the hospital? Will I be up to playing on the computer or just leave it at home? I will be in the hospital for 2 days and not much of a tv watcher and with nobody there with me, think I will get VERY bored. However, I know I will be sleeping a lot.
So, what should I have ready for at home? I am not sure what kind of clothes I will want. I was just reading a post about the drains and it sounds like I will have some challenges there. Were you able to wear your normal clothes? Once you had your tt, did you go down in a pant size?
Any ideas for what to have ready or what to take with me is appreciated.
