will clothes fit?

Can anyone who has had a LAVH tell me if your clothes fit right afterwards? I don't know if I need to go buy some loose fitting stretch shorts or something. Thanks!

Dear Petunia, I would buy something loose with drawstrings for comfort. Most procedures do cause swelling in the stomach and that area is very tender the first few days. Diane

Hi Petunia; Be sure to buy some new underwear one size larger than what you're wearing now. I normally wear white cotton panties, so I bought the larger size in colors and prints so I could tell them apart. My clothes feel okay for the most part, although jeans are a bit uncomfortable at times. The panties are a must, though. Hope it helps.

The ladies are right. Your tummy will be tender, particularly around the incisions. I opted for sundresses. They have been a great choice - no waistbands! and it hides swelly belly

Good Luck to you.
