If your surgery is planned and you have time to pack your own hospital bag, there are a few things I would include in my must pack list, as well as a few must haves for when you get home following the early days out of hospital.
You will have a lot of time on your hands, and whilst you will probably be sleeping a fair bit, I made sure I had plenty of other things to keep me busy (there is only so much daytime TV you can watch before going mad!!).
What to pack? Things to keep you busy
Things to keep you comfortable
Shopping list for once you’re home
Hopefully within no time you will be back to getting out and about and will be out of the house enjoying life again as I am now!
