What to Wear Home?

I have had most of my questions answered, but was just wondering what most of you plan on taking to the hospital to wear home. I imagine that it would be uncomfortable to have most anything touch your waist area. I don't think I have anything really lose around the waist to wear. Any ideas would be appreciated. I just want to be prepared. Thanks.

Hi Norma

Alot of us just wear home what we wore in to the hospital. It saves extra packing.
I wore a loose kind of sweat outfit, pants and top that I had bought a size too big. It worked out fine for me. You could always pick up something at Target or even a consignment or thrift store if you don't have anything. No point in spending extra $$$ on something you may not need in the future.
My outfit was also very comfortable to lounge in while looking a little better than PJ's. Nice when company came by to check up on me. I found mine at Cosco.
Best wishes to you.

What to Wear Home

Yesterday I bought a cute little jumper, and a pair of slip on sandles to wear to the castle and back again. I can also wear it later around the house and when I want to go out for my walks.

Comfortable is the key word. I'm also bringing my tummy pillow along for the ride home to put between me and the seatbelt.

What to wear home.

I had a loose fitting jumper that was fine. The incisiion site was not so sore but lower abdomen grion area was swollen. I also had 2 percoset before the 40 min. trip. Loose sweat pants would do but a little harder to put on. Step in shoes. Your small pillow will come in handy if you have to sneeze or to support yourself in the car. If you are'n't too large a panty gridle is also supportive. Best wishes. I'm 2 weeks post op and walked 1/2 mile today. It's a temporary condition.

What to Wear Home?

I wore to the Hospital what I wore home.......Pajamas!
Figured why worry about having to get dressed just to come home and get into my PJ's.
I got some Men's cotton drawstring pajama bottoms and a large T shirt.
It was comfortable and having the elastic/drawstring waist was very nice.
Also I just wore my slippers too, didn't want to have to worry about bending over to tie shoes!
Hope that helps!

What to Wear Home?

Hi Norma!
Like Susan and Shashi, I am a jumper fan. I have several in my wardrobe and it is what I wore to the hospital. I had planned to wear it home. Instead I just put on my robe and slippers (over my gown of course!).

Don't spend any additional money. Who will really see you between the Castle and home? Once home, you will be glad not to have to change again.

I took many things to the hospital. I found I could have gotten by without my suitcase. The few things of importance would have fit in my pocketbook. Everything you actually need is provided.

Lots of s and good wishes!!

What to Wear Home?

My surgery was in the winter so I wore sweats to and from the hospital. My theory is pack light, so I wore the same ones both ways.

What to Wear Home?

my personal choice is going to be a jumper and t shirt. something so easy and loose. I'd wear a muumuu if I had one!!!! Maybe just a bathrobe over my nightshirt
