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.
