List of Items to Bring to Hospital
« on: July 14, 2017, 02:00:37 pm »
Hello!

I am sure there is a list of suggested items to bring to the hospital, but darned if I can find it!  Can someone either point me to the string, or give me some input? My surger is on August 1, so I'm pulling together everything now (traveling to Keck from DC)!

Thank you so much!

Dry shampoo.  I used an ice pack a lot at the hospital and even took one home with me afterwards.  It helped a lot.
AN right side found August 2016- grape size
Retrosigmoid microsurgery October 2016
Before surgery- minor hearing loss, major balance and dizziness issues.
After surgery- severe hearing loss (it fluctuates), no dizziness, minor balance issues
