Pre-op Planning

I have my final pre-surgical appointment with the surgeon tomorrow. I assume we will discuss vitamins in addition to the typical what to expect type of stuff. So, I’ll need to order vitamins and run to the grocers to be ready for my liquid and purée diet phases. I did do a little pre-op shopping in advance, though.

I bought a nice robe in my size because I understand that there is an immediate push to walk post-op.

I bought some 6 ounce ramekins with lids for both food prep and storage.

I bought a 40 ounce insulated water bottle without a straw to ensure I get my water in and because I know adjusting to life without straws is going to be a challenge. This is so much the case that I’ve gone ahead and given up straws during the liver shrinking diet and am getting accustomed to my new water bottle!

I plan on buying some kids size silverware because small bites will be a challenge for me, too.

Anyone have any other thoughts regarding preparatory items that I may find useful?
