Did you take tennis shoes to the hospital? I’m having a huge debate with myself. Will I need them, or will hospital socks be good enough? Help!!! Surgery TOMORROW!!!

Flip flops. Don’t bother with sneakers and socks

I agree with flip flops. You’re not going to want to bend over to tie your shoes or deal with socks. Definitely slip on shoes.

Slip-ons for sure. Any bending over/squatting low really irritates my stitches and especially where the drain was. I'm 5 days out and I still need to avoid bending down for anything - shoes, picking up dropped stuff, etc.

I'm pretty sure I just wore the hospital socks - and then slip ons for the trip home. I agree with the others - your abs are going to be really sore for awhile, so you don't want to have to bend over to tie shoes.

I still wear slip-ons as much as possible. The socks they gave me were enough.
