Topic: Dumb Questions For Ladies Only
Have a couple of no doubt completely ridiculous questions for women out there who have gone through liver resection:
1. Intimate gear: during that "been run over by a truck" long recovery phase, what did y'all do to maximize comfort? GIant t-shirts? Loose shorts or pants? Did you temporarily wear very large shirts, underwear and bra in order to keep any contact from incision site? Or does a bra that fits actually aid in trying to keep things "in place" and most comfortable?
2. For those of you diagnosed at a young enough age to still be dealing with that "monthly friend," what happens if this strikes whilst you are about to undergo surgery or right after surgery? Is there something they can do to try and ensure that this monthly visitation can be held off for a few days?
Please forgive the very personal nature of these questions -- and count on me to just jump right in there.
Strength to all.
