I am going to travel out of state to have my proctocolectomy w ileostomy on tuesday and am wondering if there is anything in particular that I should pack and take with me??? Hope this is not a silly question, just not sure about clothes for the long ride home after the hospital stay, etc. Any tips on what I might need while inpatient would be appreciated too. thanks in advance!!
