8 DAYS TILL SURGERY. I had a question about control top panties.

I was thinking of going to buy a pair or two of the control top panties and I was not sure what size to buy. I would like to have a little support but also it would be nice to breathe as well, airflow..... I am a side sleeper and toss and turn so much in the night, my cats can't stand it...lol

Re: 8 DAYS TILL SURGERY. I had a question about control top panties.

I am 6 days post op and can't stand to have anything tight across my tummy. I may change my mind later, but even my baggy jammies are annoying!!I bought the abdominal binder every one raved about and haven't used that yet either. I'm still thinking that will come in handy maybe next week.

Re: 8 DAYS TILL SURGERY. I had a question about control top panties.

My advice on that is to not buy control top panties. I wanted things as loose as possible. You may even buy panties that are one size bigger than you normally wear. My incision from my TAH BSO was pretty tender, and so I did not want anything rubbing on it.

I am also a side sleeper, but did not feel the need to bind my tummy. I never did buy the binder everyone talks about. I did just fine. Everyone is different, though. Do what works for you.

I had daVinci, and I couldn't wear granny panties - the waistband hit right on my incisions. I stuck with loose low-rider thongs with no elastic.

I am a side sleeper, but found that I couldn't sleep comfortably on my side for a good 10 weeks post-op. I generally slept on my back with a pillow on my stomach.
