When do I get to wear my regular size underwear??

Before my TAH I bought a couple of packages of underwear two sizes bigger to fit my swelly belly. I am eight weeks out and I still can not fit into my smaller undies Is anyone else experiencing the same issue???

If I wear them they dig into my incision and by the end of the daythey feel painful. I don't want to spend any extra money on more packages of the larger size if I should go back to my original size soon. Can anyone tell me when they went back to their pre-op underwear size?

I did belly crunches after my first three abdominal surgeries. I am only 10 days post op and it is too soon. You can sit up straight in a chair and pull your belly button in towards your back and hold for 5 seconds and release. Do this as often as is comfortable then do it some more. this will help to strengthen those muscles that have been traumatized.

My surgery was LSH, but I've been wearing bikini panties cuz they fall below my incisions. I think the big ones would drive me nuts. But I didn't have the same procedure as you so I don't exactly what sorts of incisions you have.

I'm a bit of a knot head. I refused to buy granny panties. I've just been sticking pads in my stretched out sweats. On the two outings where I HAD to wear underwear because I couldn't wear sweats, it was very painful. Not the incision points but my upper belly under my breasts. It felt like severe indigestion. I'm supposed to go back to work in 3 weeks and I don't know what I'll do if I can't get back into my bikini underwear. Granny panties may be in my future...argh!

OK so yeah large panties are a must. But what is worse is actual pants. I put on jeans today for like a hour because all my sweats are in washer, Boy was that a mistake they just rubbed me all wrong and tight...

I see Im not the only one sick of granny panties(bigger size,no less)..they are so attractive,arent they??? NOT!!

I put my bikini ones back on 3 days ago.....first day,it irritated me..........after that,they felt fine......

And I am VERY lucky to live in FL right now........temps in the mid 80s and I can get outta my sweats and wear shorts..........they seem to fit better than jeans(those still fit too snug!!)..........
