To save anyone trawling I've stolen the summary idea from Leolady - here's what came out of the great finds blog, for easy reference. Good list I think!
Great comfy clothes stuff from M&S - big knickers, support pants, dance pants and jeggings - and Boux Avenue PJs gets a special mention too... And I'm chucking in my Tesco onesie too for post-op midriff comfort!
Warmth and comfort: Snuggly long cardigans and shrugs, fleecy blankets, fluffy hotties and microwavecherry stone cushions
Skin care: Bio-Oil and E45
Post-hysterectomy hot flushes: if you can't bear the though of a mineral water spray there's always a bottle of Evian and little spray bottle, and don't forget the Kegel Trainer app for pelvic floor health...
Bed must-haves: overbed table and foam bed wedge - plus a V-shaped cushion works to help the back in any chair
Big votes for "kit" - Wi-Fi, iPads, iPods, iPhones/other smartphones and E-readers - as long as you keep the chargers handy!
Conveniences of life: moist tissue and baby wipes...
Essentials: apparently wine of all colours especially Italian, it seems - and a Tefal Actifry for healthy chips...!
If you believe then great: magnets, Ladycare bracelets. Bit of a sceptic here but never mind! A reiki and other healing things can't be bad either...
And lastly a bit of creativity and contemplation, for staying sane: a Journal, sketch pad, pens
