Waistband Comfort after Surgery

I just had my surgery on 5/16/08 - LAVH with left ovary removed. My hospital stay was as comfortable as a hospital stay can be. The catheter was my arch enemy, but we soon parted and I was much better. I was sprung the day after surgery and the car ride home was an experience. The next time filling in potholes or maintaining California Highways comes on the ballot they can count me in. On the ride home I was also uncomfortable with the undergarments that I bought (already two sizes bigger than my normal size) as they still hit me in the wrong spot around my waistband and belly button. My husband desperate to help me when we got home suggested that I try on a pair of his underwear. It was the best thing I ever did. He had some tighty-whities, but because he is a big guy they were the perfect high-waisted underwear. They don't have any seams in the back to dig into me when I am sitting upright in bed and the waistband doesn't slip. Best of all, it was my husband who came to my rescue and he is so proud of helping me.
