I would like to know the answer too. Anyone here know what is the right answer. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I bump into an good answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could give you help..
My doctor told me to take a toothbrush. everyone here told me all these other things to take and I took them. I only used the toothbrush. they supplied everything I needed. you will have a catheter so pj's are out. wear very loose clothing when you go so it will fit when you.
You will be swollen and have a tube coming out of your tummy...
I wore the hospital gown so no pjs of my own..wore out what I wore in..take a toothbrush and carmex! maybe a book. I did not read or do much of anything...my iv was in the crook of my arm and the dang thing when off if my arm was not straight! and I had no tubes and went home the day after.
, make it easy on yourself!..
In the hospital -.
- nothing to deep or complicated. slippers (or slip on shoes if you have foot problems), toothbrush & toothpaste, an ipod if you are so inclined (you might want to have someone bring you this after.
Wear comfy, baggy, stretchy clothes that are loose around your belly. This applies to both pants and tops. Don't forget a small pillow to hold on your tummy on them way home and a bottle of water to sip..
Best thing I took was PJ bottoms, the catheter came out next morning and it was nice to have them. I took my mini laptop, and I found when I couldn't.
I had something to do. The doctor had me take a shower the next day, and they didn't provide shampoo, I am glad I had my own...
Jerrythat's a great list, thanks for the website!.
I liked having my own pillow, slippers, robe...and earplugs!.
The one thing I wished I had taken was a blanket - the hospital blankets were so thin and flimsy...
One thing that nobody has mentioned is chapstick. I highly recommend you take it. I also had a pillow in the car for the ride home, it helps to hold it against your tummy for the bumps..
I took my cell phone, charger, hairbrush, chapstick, earplugs so I could.
, I wore loose clothing there that I could wear home.. it varies per hospital.. mine provided socks, toothbrush and whatnot so I didn't need to bring mine...
