My preparations so far:
A big pile of books by my bed. For convalescence. I’m only going to be in for 2 days, after all.
A whole stock of stuff on the kindle. 2 days is a lot of reading.
Unscented shower gel for my unscented shower on the morning of the op.
Swim in the sea on Sunday evening, because who knows when I’ll be able to do that again? If not this week, it will be a couple of months.
And that’s it so far. I have my pre-op assessment tomorrow & I will get to see the lovely Sandra & revise reconstructions. That is the bit that makes it a big (ish) op, but I think it will be worth it.
I will be a lady of leisure until the autumn. No swimming, no cycling, no running. I will be very sensible. I will be fine.
