A few of the vets here recommended taking my own pillowcase and pillow. This was so nice to have, I found I needed a few extras to prop yourself up here and there to make you more comfortable. I also brought my own bath soap, pajamas some with pants and some nighties for the first few nights until your catherer is out, can't have pj bottoms with the catherer tube hanging down your leg. Anything that feels like home and smells like home helps! I also brought my son's portable dvd player, headphones and some movies....that was great.
I really wish you well for your surgery. Will be thinking of you.
