Packing Your Bag for the Hospital

As the day of your bariatric surgery draws closer, you’ll need to put the finishing touches on your preparations. Your bariatric surgeon will let you know how long you can expect to stay in the hospital. Be sure to pack enough comfortable clothes and socks for the length of your stay. It’s also a good idea to pack a soft robe, slippers, and a sweater.

Watch this video for more quick tips on packing your hospital bag. It recommends checking the policies of the hospital to find out if you’re allowed to bring portable electronics. You may also wish to take an mp3 player, book, crossword puzzles, and your favorite pillow to make your stay more comfortable.
