Got a question... Are Medifast and Chantix safe to take together? Thanks for any comment. Second question.. I'm having my.

Gastric Bypass surgery.

Tomorrow and I haven't packed anything yet. I got good advice from my other question about some things to bring but I'm not sure if I have everything. I have a robe, chap stick, nose spray, some.

Books.

, my ipod, cell phone, my chargers, slippers, socks, and pictures. Do I bring my own clothes for the whole stay or just the ride home? Do I bring my own bathroom stuff or are they going to give that to me? It's my first.

Surgery.

So I'm really new at this so anything I'm missing please let me know =)..

Yes sir! however you might want to make sure and wait for another member to confirm this as I am not sure. Better yet, why don't you e-mail the Medifast guys because they can assist you better...

You only need clothes for arriving and leaving. Do not over pack clothes. You'll wear a gown the whole time you're there. Slippers are a good idea. Chapstick was the best... I overpacked.

Still, it came in handy as my.

Surgery.

Ran 1 1/2 hours late I.

Hope.

Yours is on time!.

Best wishes!..

I wore the same clothes to the hospital and home. At the hospital, you'll be wearing the hospital gown. I was allowed to take a shower the last day at the hospital, so the travel shampoo and soap I brought were wonderful!.

I agree....don't overpack........ pre.

Surgery.

They will put special stockings on your legs and no slip socks...... and then on top of that compression socks that will plug into an air compressor ....you will wear them and a gown until you change to go home...... if I was not asleep I was.

Walking.

The hallway....by the time you feel good enough to read a book or something...they are sending you home..

My routine was......

Sleep.

...then, when they wake you up for vitals....you unplug your legs and walk walk walk......back to the room, go to the bathroom (I never had a cath).... get back in bed,use my breathing thingy to.

Exercise.

My lungs, then gave my self a shot of pain killer, and slept until they woke me for something else....

They always seemed to be jabbing me for something (testing my sugar, taking my blood pressure)..... time went quickly....liz..

I would have someone hold onto your electronics for you, you just never know. The hospital will provide toiletries for you. From my own personal experience (I had my vertical sleeve done on the 20th), I was way too sick to use do much more than watch TV. Make sure to wear a lose pair of pants for the trip home!..

I did exactly what JJ did. The hospital where I was at did not have me change clothes until I left. I walked around in hospital gowns. They were nice enough to change my gown(s) daily. I do recommend obviously a change of underwear for after the removal of the cathether but the majority of the time you will be in a gown...

I didn't take anything with me, just the clothes I wore in, which I wore home. My sister bought me a couple of puzzle.

Books.

To do when I was sitting up, which they encouraged from day one. I didn't get far on the one puzzle I worked on, but it was something to think about while I waited for them to let me go back to.

Sleep.

I vaguely remember the t.v. being in my room, but my visitors only used it to entertain their kids. The soap and toothbrush they provided were adequate, and I really was glad to not have to worry about packing much to go home...

I packed stuff but used nothing but my chapstick (thank God I had that), cell phone and they supplied everything else. I wore the same clothes home that I wore in. I slept the whole time when they weren't pugging me for one reason or another...

If you use a c-pap machine be sure to bring it. Bring lose fitting sweats, a firm pillow to hold against your gut (it will help) for the trip home , chapstick and your ipod..

Leave.

Everything else at home...

WIshing you a very successful, smooth.

Surgery.

And a strong & comy recovery! You'll be sitting on the losers bench tomorrow!!!.

What I actually used (versus packed :):.

Chap-stick & lotion.

Nose spray (I had O2 on for 2 days, dries a girl out).

Bathrobe so as not to frighten the small children I passed in the hall.

Loose.

Yoga.

Pants & sweat shirt for coming & going.

Slippers.

Cell phone & charger.

IPod - hospitals are noisy places, especially if you get a room mate..

Listening.

To.

Music.

Helped me to.

Sleep.

& distracted me while I waited for.

Surgery.

..

Lap top - I was in the hospital for 5 days and am not a TV watcher. I couldn't concentrate to read, so it was good distraction..

My own toiletries... hospital toothpaste & shampoo are often yuk...
