Re: Kindle - perhaps for the person who is staying with the patient to use. The patient will be under influence of pain meds, and very busy with the interaction with nurses etc. Plus walking and just dealing with recovery takes a lot out of you. Fatigue leaves you little chance to read. How do I know? I took several new magazines, and a book to read. I never touched one of them so they just took up space :~).
Loose, off the waist clothing for going home is important. The surgeon
actually listed this in instructions for the surgery. I had drains and
surgical staples when I went home but some have them removed before
