What to wear home?

Next week, I'm having a LAVH and rectocele repair. Will I be able to wear home the clothes I come in? Or will I have a swelly belly?

I plan on wearing some comfy yoga pants--I had a lap 3 weeks ago and real clothes did not feel good at all. My hyst is next week, and you can bet I'll be wearing my yoga pants again! I got a 2 pack at costco for $20.

What to wear home?

I wore my sweatpants to the castle and since I wore them for about 2 hours, that's what I wore home and many days since. I couldn't bend enough to get my tennis shoes on so I would suggest something slip on, I left in my slippers and no one cared. I would just suggest something loose and slightly baggy. I ended up with some bladder repair and had a cathator for a week so baggy worked very well to accomdate that.

I wore a sweat suit and slip on sandels. With VERY stretchy undies. Remember this is not a fashion show...anything that you find comfortable is what you want to wear! There is not much at the hospital that they have not seen! Hope all goes well.

I wouldn't count on wearing your pre-surgery clothes home...unless your pre-surgery clothes are stretchy and a bit oversized! I could wear my regular jeans a week after surgery, but I don't think I could have pulled it off the day after surgery when I went home! Plan on something soft, stretchy, oversized, and comfy!

What to wear home?

I bought a couple of really cute capri pants with a drawstring waist in the underwear/PJ section at Walmart. I think they cost $7 and some change each. They had shirts that matched, but I didn't like them. Ended up buying a cheap stretch t-shirt in the clothing section that matched perfectly. Will take my flip flops with me to wear home. :-)

Glad to hear I wasn't the only one that left in a robe! I was wheeled out to the curb where the car pulled up so it wasn't like I was walking around like that. I wore loose clothing to the castle thinking I would wear them home. But when it came time to leave the last thing on my mind was getting dressed and I was a bit dizzy and in pain and I just didn't care.

In a week I am having all the same procedures you had.
Can you tell me how recovery went (ideas, etc.) and how you are feeling now. I am new to this so not sure how to post private messages. Thanks.
