What to wear?

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.

My doc requires everything off from the waist down, so it doesn't matter what I wear. I hate those appointments. Ugh!

Everything off waist below, so it didn't matter. I wore sun dress the first 4-5 weeks.. They just were so comfy!

Re: What to wear?

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!
