How long do you have to wear the support underwear after hernia surgery? And is it ok i take it off for a day?
Unique question: This is not a normal situation for those of us who work in american medicine.

If they did not this is a question to direct to your surgeon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Garment Guards: As a matter of fact, there are several products available from simple inserts into regular briefs, to an actual disposable garment worn like briefs. It depends on the degree of the problem and your personal preference. You certainly don't have to worry about embarrassing situations with either method and you should obtain and try several types before calling quits since they all fit differently. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I am having surgery on both of my feet, will I be allowed to wear cotton underwear during surgery?
Depends: This is really a facility dependent concern. Hospitals and surgery centers all have their own policies. However, I have never had a location decline a patient's request to wear their undergarments if they are not going to be a hindrance. The only time i can think they would decline this, is when the length of surgery requires that a catheter may need to be placed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
