Preparing for Surgery - what should I do?
Wednesday, June 03, 2009 8:46 AM
I'm having a bilateral Siea/Diep on July 1st. What should I bring to the hospital? What kinds of things should I do to prepare to go to the hospital? What can I expect after surgery? How will I feel the first few days, weeks, months? My family will be rotating in and out of town to help me, how do I prepare them to help me?
I've read what the books say, but I'm curious about other people's experiences.
I'd appreciate any help you guys can give me.
