We need to gather a list of what to take in our overnight bag to provide information for ladies about to have their operation so I'll start with:
Bridget Jones big knickers, Nightie rather than PJ's, loose clothing for return journey, dressing gown (Hospital gowns tend not to tie at the back) Phone and charger, books, nibbles, mints, pillow for return journey, toiletries, herbal or decaff teabags if preferred,
Add whatever I've missed......If we keep this going and add new items it'll stay towards the top of the "Chat" which'll be good for our new members!
Throat lozenges Mine was awful when I woke up xx
The paperwork given to you at the pre -med and a pen and paper for any questions while you are there.
Loving this Barb. I will add earphones for phone, iPad/tablet. Eye mask, earplugs, few luxuries nice moisturiser, I took 4711 spray Cos it smells nice and was cooling. Sanitary pads, download talking books. Defo some nice nibbles. Bright lipstick cos I love a bit of lippy.
Any medication that you are using. Wheelie case to avoid lifting. Reading glasses in case there are forms to read and sign. Wear slip-on shoes - easy on easy off.
Eye mask and ear plugs as some wards can be noisy and will add some peaceful rest
Someone to carry it for you if you don't have a wheelie bag
