I'm facing my first resection this Thursday and I'm wondering what I should bring to the hospital. I've got plenty of books, movies etc.., but I'm wondering about
clothing. Is it easier to just wear the hospital garb than to try and bring my own? I was planning to bring a robe, slippers, undergarments, etc.. Will I be comfortable enough to wear any sort of sweat pants or stretchy pants? The surgeon is going to start the surgery laproscopically, but may end up having to do an
open incision. It's about
8 inches of my terminal ileum that is being resected.
Thanks for any insight you can provide.
