find the humor...

The funny stories helped during my recovery, so will add one of my own.
I am 11 weeks post op and feel I am doing pretty well now. I thought the day wouldn' t come when I could say this..
I remember one evening in particular:
My stomach would be pretty flat upon waking in the morning, but as the day wore on, and the word "wore" has new meaning in this story, it would swell to uncomforatble height, even if I spent all day in bed!
Even the lovely mesh underwear from the hospital was irritating.
One evening I swelled up so much that none of my biggest purchased underwear was comfortable. I began to cry as I asked my husband if I could wear a pair of his briefs. By the time he had brought them in to me, I had to laugh. Within minutes I was hysterical as I realized I even had to cut the elastic in his to make them comfortable. The elastic on any panties was just too much!
For at least three days I wore those soft briefs with the cut waistband. Wonderful.. and the release of the cry and laugh was great too!
I thought I had thrown all three pair away after that, but he pulled a pair out of his drawer last Sunday.... we both had another good laugh..
By the way.. I am a size 8... so this can happen to anyone!
All the best to all who read this.

OOWWW! It hurts to laugh!!!
Thank goodness for big panties. I am/was also a size 8. I panicked today when I looked in the panties drawer and there were no big panties, just the pre-op ones. But, alas, the big panties were waiting for me in the dryer. I am wearing my husbands shorts though, never though about asking to wear his boxers, they would probably fit now though...

That's really funny. When I first had my children, 28 years ago, my husbund and I did not have a lot of money. I wore his underwear at the end of the pregnancy. Now, years later, I bought larger underwear. How things go round and round.
We need to laugh at times like this.
