will i still need granny panties with a TVH?

i have a couple of granny panties in a larger size from before i lost weight...and am packing those.. do you think i will need more than two pair?

i have some that fit just right now...but will i get a swelly belly?

i don't plan on overdoing it at all..
in fact i plan on letting everyone pamper me....

i want to recover right!

also i just thought i'd share that i am what is hopefully my last period! cramping..backache.... etc..and as far as i know...i don't even have fibroids or endometreosis ....

i hope they don't find any complications when they get in there..

i go for pre-op testing five days before my surgery. one thing they are doing is an ultrasound. is that to check if my ovaries are fine? cuz if they aren't fine i'd rather just have one surgery for them......

but if i can keep them i would like to....

thanks to all the great and supportive members here....

its nice to have a "sister" to talk to..
( i always wanted one!)

I used granny panties for a while after my surgery. It was mostly so that the waist line wouldn't hit my incision - I had a bikini line cut with my tah/bso. Having a few pair a couple sizes larger than normal to accommodate any swelling sounds like a good idea to me.

Best wishes, I hope that everything goes well with your pre-op appointment and surgery.

I didn't buy or need any larger panties after my TVH. I had a few cotton french cut panties that I wore if my belly was a little swollen at the end of the day. It certainly doesn't hurt to have a couple of pairs on hand.

When I had my TVH, A&P repairs, with TOT, my hospital provided me with a pair of disposable panties while I was an inpatient. I wore boy cut styled panties home and are my daily use underwear. I like the boy cut panties because they have softer non-elastic leg holes, soft waistbands and don't give you a wedgie! I do wear a light control brief whenever I go out to hold my abdomen in while I ride in the jeep.

I hope this helps!
