LAST MINUTE REMINDERS BEFORE BARIATRIC AND METABOLIC SURGERY
Be sure to prepare your home, and yourself, for a trouble-free experience.
Prepare your home
Make a comfortable area in your house for when you get back from the hospital. Stock up on ice chips, popsicles, clear broth, skim milk, and juice. It’s important to stay hydrated before and after your surgery. Also, be sure to refill any needed prescriptions before you get back from the hospital.
Pack a bag
Take all the necessary items you’ll need for a two-day stay at the hospital like prescriptions, loose-fitting pajamas, toiletries, and any important insurance papers.
