Surgery Packing What to Pack when having a Surgery Holiday

Surgery Packing As a Medical Tourist

We suggest that you get your suitcase out a few weeks prior so that you can add things and remove as you think of them. There will be essential things that you will need to take and then there is the wish list if you have room. If you fold clothes in half and then roll them instead of folding you will find you keep things wrinkle free as well as have a lot more room. Make sure all toiletries are in plastic bags so if they spill won’t ruin all your clothes, from experience we know toothpaste especially has the bad habit of doing this so put it in a ziplock bag.

Your hotel will have hair dryers as well as shampoo, conditioner soap, and basic toiletries so don’t over pack on these items. Don’t panic if you think you forgot something you can always buy it when you get there. Don’t overfill your suitcase on the way over as you want to leave room for all your new purchases.
