We feel that it’s important to carefully plan your trip to make your days in Belgium a little easier.
No blender—We have one in the guesthouse, don’t bother to bring one. We even have a Thermomix at your disposal.
Adaptor—For patients from the UK or USA, you want to bring an appropriate adapter for use of your electrical equipment.
Entertainment—Feel free to bring personal entertainment items such as a laptop, music, books, journals, crosswords, etc. The first few days after surgery you will probably spend most of the time resting in our Guesthouse 2pass Clinic.
Personal items that make you smile —stuffed animals, Bible, family pictures, etc.
Comfortable clothes and pyjamas— Some patients walk around the entire week in pyjamas after surgery, and that is fine for us. Avoid clothes with a tight-fitting neck. Thinks with zippers that don’t have to pass over the head are the easiest. Comfort before fashion is the key for your clothes selection.
Concealer—Patients still have bruising after 1 week. You need a good concealer to cover your blue stains if you don’t want to attract too much attention going home.
Scarf—If you want to make a walk around the block or go to the nearby park, also when returning home a scarf is very handy to cover the face and make you feel more comfortable.
Sunglasses—Come in handy as well to hide swollen or bruised eyes.
Your glasses—If you wear contact lenses and you have surgery done around the forehead and eyes, it is good possible that you will not be able to wear them after surgery. So bringing your glasses is a must then!
