Love you positive attitude. I am yet to have my surgery and have been glued to all the posts. I know there are some horror stories and my heart goes out to these ladies but it is also good to hear that some ladies are coming out the other side and seeing a brighter life post surgery.

If you also want loose fitting yet nice pants, go to womenwithin.com, they have nice stretch waist styles etc and it wont hurt your incision area or be tight on the belly like zippered pants.

Glad to hear this news. I did some precautionary shopping over the weekend. I will start back to class in dresses and tights (loose ones) with boots. I hope they fit.

Leggings are easy but sometimes tight on the belly, try them all and see what makes you more comfortable. Dresses are always good, they wont hurt the belly. Good luck with class.

I went back to my college classes the week after surgery because if I missed anymore classes than that I risked being dropped. I have worn nothing but my Victoria Secret Boyfriend style shorts to class. I am starting to wonder if people are wondering if I have any other pants. LOL They probably don't even notice because I am not paying any attention to what anyone else is wearing.

Re: How long before jeans?

I had my hysterectomy on Oct 18th. I tried jeans once and was very uncomfortable. It is going on 4 weeks and I still like my sweatpants. There are some cute styles out there for going out in public. At home I wear my old ones that no one will see. Be comfortable.

Leggings are only ok if the top you have on comes way over and covers your rear end, you know the saying 'leggings are NOT pants' is so true', I can only imagine how bad they would look with swelly belly. With a loose long top though they would be a comfy option if they were big enough.

Re: How long before jeans?

I pulled on my jeans today (I am a week post-op) and they were OK for the first 4 hours - then I changed into a strapless, loose dress (it's summer here - well, nearly). I think in another week I'll be fine to wear my jeans - BUT I have been making sure I walk a little bit (maybe 20-30m/20-30yds) every 30-60 mins since I got home the day after surgery AND I have also been pulling my tummy in every now and then (maybe every 2-3hrs, and not fully, and not holding it in) for a few seconds since day 4 post-op. Maybe that's helped?

I'm sure you'll figure it out - we - and our recoveries - are ALL different.
