Below is a list of supplies and things to consider before your procedure:
Stock up on ice packs or freeze ice cubes, then transfer them into zip-top bags so that you have plenty of ice ready to apply to the site, to reduce and keep swelling down.
Stock up on Gatorade or other drinks that have electrolytes, your body is going to need them to function properly during the recovery process.
You are going to want to make a trip to your local pharmacy to stock up on your prescriptions, you do not want to run out of prescription medication while you are bedridden for the first few days to a week after your procedure.
Make sure you are up to date with what your specific surgery is going to need, ask your surgeon what supplies you will need based on the procedure they will be performing.
Lip balm is also crucial, you're going to have dry mouth, and lips like you've never had before.
You're going to want a thermometer to keep tabs on your temp. If you start getting chills, you need to check if you have a fever and, if so, report it to your doctor right away.
