Jammies. Walmart or Marshalls always has cute ones this time of year. T shirt and pull on pants type. They are often as cute as any tracksuit, but not as heavy. Hoody for a jacket.

I took comfy gym pants and a t shirt. Honestly, in the hospital I just wore the gown and did not change till I left the next afternoon. Basically it’s about 30 hours you are in there, just grab something comfy and don’t stress about it. Something that is loose around the belly area tho. Good luck with surgery!

since i work at the hospital that i had the surgery at i was not going to wear a hospital gown while there. as soon as i could stand i changed into a pair of clean shorts and a tshirt. there is no reason you have to be in a gown. just wear a shirt you don't mind getting dirty because you never know what is going to stain it. I came to the hospital in shorts and left in shorts but this is southern california.

Does the drain irritate when wearing pants? Maybe a silly question, but does it hurt bending over putting pants on post op? I was thinking about getting maxi dresses for after but idk what I’d do with the drain ....

sorry OP for mildly high jacking this post had questions like yours and didn’t think it needed another post 😬

I wore a baggy T-shirt and comfy leggings and my Birkenstock’s. And that’s all I needed. Besides clothes the other thing I used was my phone and charger as well as chapstick and lotion. Don’t over pack hehe

I'm planning on taking PJ tops and really loose pants, plus a front closure sports bra for the girls. And underwear, of course. Anything loose and stretchy.

It's winter here in NJ, but since the hospital has valet service, I'm leaving my coat in the car.

      Currently waiting on a surgery date. Hope to hear soon. I have been fighting for the sleeve surgery for 10 years. I am so ready!

        I haven't pooped in a weed and I'd love a 4 pound poo right now lol

      2. ms.sss

        Lol, yeah, I've been known to drop 3-ish lbs after a good (and long awaited) poop.

        .....or even after a moderate to severe dumping episode. yikes.

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)
