This may seem like an odd question, but tomorrow will be my last post op visit and I assume that means the doctor will examine my pelvic area. Normally I wear shorts because at one time I wore a dress and they covered or draped part of my private area. Would it be better if I wore a dress so I won't have to pull my shorts all the way down? What did you wear?
I wore a dress. Nurse just told me to pull dress up, take my underwear off and place the sheet over my lap. Much easier for me. I found my dresses so much more comfortable. Good luck on your appointment.
Wear whatever you want to wear. If they want you to take it off, they'll give you time and privacy to do that.
My first follow-up exam will be in December, so I will definitely show up wearing warm pants, heavy socks and boots. It'll take me a few moments to get all that off, but the temps outdoors won't allow for walking to/from the bus station in anything less!
