What are some things that people have found to be helpful to bring when you are schedule to undergo breast surgery: be it lumpectomy, mastectomy, etc.

I am curious to what would be helpful for me to bring in such a situation. I do not have surgery scheduled at this time, but trying to get a jump on it and I thought this would also be a good helpful post for others.

Please share your tips and comment on what you feel or found to be most helpful for you.

thank you in advance.

What should you bring to surgery?

Posted on

I would be certain to bring clothes that are baggy - easy to change in and out of. I would also bring a contact case - if you have them - or wear your glasses. Make sure if you are staying over, to bring the neccessities, such as toothbrush and paste. I also recommend bringing a good audio book because there are sometimes where you do not want to even see light so closing your eyes and just listening to a book is nice.

Hope this helps.
