Re: Wondering about what I need to do before surgery

I am also scheduled for Da Vinci surgery on February 17th in Duluth GA. I'm glad you asked these questions because I was wondering about these things also. Found this site a few days ago and I'm SO glad I did! It really helps to have the support and advice of my hyster sisters that have been through this already. Good luck with your surgery! I will be thinking about you.

Re: Wondering about what I need to do before surgery

I woke with a catheter and drain so stayed in their gown until they came out then it was straight into a sheer and boxer shorts/singlet combo for me!

That was 10 days ago and guess what I am wearing as I type this? The same exact thing! Get pants in a size bigger and I like the nice stretchy singlets for the extra support to tummy.

This was my "uniform" after my tummy tuck even, I can't stand gowns and boxers can be worn very low on the hips.

I am still incredibly uncomfortable in underwear though! I'm not sure if it's the episiotomy or the rectocele or all of it combined but I find them unbearably uncomfortable. Luckily I have had no bleeding or discharge for 6 days now so have been able to go commando!

I guess have a selection of co-ordinated pieces so you can mix and match as comfort demands?

Best of luck... I'm sure you will do just fine!

I am scheduled for a divinci on 2/23/12. I was clueless before reading today. There are so many different types of surgeries you don't know how to prepare. Thank you sisters! You rock!
