What to wear to have surgery on my shoulder this afternoon?



I know I'll be in a robe and whatnot, but what should I wear to change back into? A short sleeve button down so I can get it over my shoulder easily?

Question is for those who have had shoulder surgery.


ETA:

Oh and if I die, I leave my 29k posts to SlowFlowPro so he can pad his stats a little more.

Its 45 degrees and I don't own a wifebeater. Oh and I don't want this doctor to think I'm white trash, I work for the company that employs him and reputation is everything

Nothing you have to pull over your head. I wore a full zip hoodie (buy a cheap one from Wal Mart)

Hospitals are generally cold.

Also, if you can, make sure they fit you in your sling before you leave if you can get someone from the DME department to come do it. They are easily adjustable, but it helps having someone who knows the product get you initially set up, not some nurse.

Think of him playing with your stem and berries as you go under the anesthesia.

Also, it sounds stupid but write "wrong shoulder" on your good shoulder with a sharpie. Yes, these things do happen.

Also, don't say anything stupid to your CRNA if she is hot as soon as they start your meds. It will give you a drunk feeling and I told mine she was hot.....even though she worked with my wife.

Lastly, do not wait for your block to wear off to start taking your pain meds. the first night is not so bad, the second night after your block has worn off it HORRIBLE.

I think it was something like take two percocet every 4 hours and I started that as soon as I got home. My sleeping pattern was thrown off too for a few days.

Sleeping with the sling was terrible for me. I slept on the couch most of the nights in the beginning because getting in and out of my bed was hard as hell. if you have a recliner, they can be nice too.

Whatever you wear, keep in mind you will likely have a dressing over your shoulder so make sure it has alot of room.

I know I'm gonna hit on a nurse. I am pre-embarrassed

Thanks for the advice everyone. I can't wait to be miserable

I have to work tomorrow and Wednesday from home. I hope I am up to talking on conference calls.

You honestly had to ask what to wear to have surgery? And your worried about the doctor caring what your wearing?
Why, are you try and close a deal on the table?

Your going to have surgery. No one will care what your wearing. Wear something comfy. Gym shorts, flip flops, and a t-shirt are fine.

It's more about getting it over his shoulder and head after the surgery than trying to pimp.

You missed the point hoss. I was wondering what would be the most comfortable to put on for my shoulder post-op.

I said I don't want to wear a wife beater because I am not white trash and I don't own one.

Obviously you didn't read. T-shirt would be tough to get on over my shoulder.

Get out of this thread.
