    People readily put something into their bodies that carries a risk of psychosis.....to lose weight? More doctors should be prescribing healthy diets and exercise, not this sort of rubbish. It's not rocket science and there is no miracle cure - eat less, move more.......

    JJMelb got a reaction from Quinn in What do you REALLY need to take to hospital?   
    What I wore/took for overnight:
    Zip thru hoodie, track pants and trainers (wore the same thing home as I only wore it for 2 hours on admission day)
    Clean underwear, toothbrush and paste, perfume, mascara and Chapstick
    Arnica pills
    Food (I have stayed at my hospital before and have already experienced the awful food so took my own paleo cacao nut granola which meant I had something I actually wanted to eat by the time I felt like eating!)
    iPad
    Magazines and a book (didn't look at either)
    Phone charger.
    I didn't really bother with hair dryer, makeup etc - I washed my hair on the day and I didn't really give a toss about putting on a face before I went home. Good luck with your surgery!

    JJMelb got a reaction from ChristineB in Recovery tips??   
    I wish I had MENTALLY prepared for a long recovery.  It is MAJOR surgery and as such, so is the recovery.  I didn't really buy any loose clothing apart from a few nightshirts so that there was no waist band to irritate the area.  I took some trackie pants and hoodies to hospital (I was in hospital 4 nights) but just wore my nightshirts the entire time.  I spent the first week at home pretty much in bed (not laying still the whole time but as my bedroom is on the 2nd level going up and down stairs all day is not a good idea.)  I did nothing.  Probably for about 2-3 weeks.  I was fortunate enough to have my mother here to do everything for me.  I don't think I drove for about 2 1/2 to 3 weeks.  Make sure you have 2 compression garments so that one can be washed whilst you are wearing one.  And when it's time for the drains to come out, ask for 2 nurses to do them both at the same time.  Believe me, you will not want to experience that twice.  It's a long recovery, don't try and speed things up as it won't work.  I'm still happy I had it done though.  Good luck!

    Thanks JMac!  That ice sounds like a good idea.  I am quietly crap*ing myself about tomorrow...I always have a fear when I go under a GA that I am going to die.  Ridiculous as I have had GA's before so I know I'm not allergic and I'm very comfortable with my surgical team but I always think of the worst (having 2 small children probably exacerbates this.)  Anyway I go in at 9am......on the upside it wont be nearly as full on as the abdo I had last year....  Best wishes to everyone else going in this week.

    Hi girls, just thought I would jump in to this line up.... I'm going in on 16th July to have my 250cc taken out and replaced with 465cc EHP over the muscle with Dr Tim Brown.  Looking forward to a bit more volume
