Re: Your First Experience of Hospital
I'll add one or two.
No matter how much pain you are in, don't ever ask to lie on your front for the post-op Xray, that was even more painful.
Don't let other patients get you down and tell you their woes if you are feeling fragile.
It is possible to turn yourself if you are a girlie and wearing a nighty just by pulling it out from underneath you.
Don't assume you will be able to stand on your own two feet at first, you won't!
Get some "dry shampoo" as showers will be out for a while.
