Bit of an odd question. But ......

Pyjamas or nightie to take in the hospital with me lol , last time on my hysterectomy I think I took a nightie and can remember them checking underneath all the time to see how much bleeding etc ! I'm more comfy in pyjamas nowadays but it may be a hassle having to pull down a lot to take pack out etc lol ... Starting to get nervous now and anxious .. Silly really !

    Definitely a nightie. You will have a catheter in and probably a pack so you won't want the hassle of removing the pyjama bottoms.

    Hi Sarah,they will give you s gown to wear.you can take a nightie in if you wish.

    Because you have a catheter and pack in you will need access to that area when removing it.

    For any gynae operation you need a nightie. Any lady who just had pyjamas on my ward ended up wearing a hospital gown! Pyjamas were a definite no noย

      Do you have to wear there gowns for surgery or can you wear your own?

      Because I came out next day and couldn't move with that catheter I kept the gown on!

      Had a shower next day then changed into clean PJ until the consultant told me I could

      Go home.xx x

      You obviously have to wear a hospital gown for the operation and then you can change into a nightie when you wake up on the ward or keep the hospital gown on. On my ward all patients were washed, hair done, teeth cleaned and put into a clean nightie ย once they were awake from the anaesthetic. It made the patients feel much better.

      I had to get myself up and and showered and changed, with catheter in with no support.... I agree sadly basic nursing care lacking.... I think due to low staff numbers and staff having too much to do.ย

      Not sure about that SMM. Nurse numbers on the wards are actually the same or if not better than years ago. Just think there's been a complete change in culture.ย

      I had no sleep in hospital and the catheter was hurting all night. Night staff were lovely but when morning staff came on totally different...Pushed out of bed at 8am...no breakfast till 9.00...bed stripped and I was left in a chair till my hubby came.....rudely told I could not leave until I had done 3 wee's and i had low blood pressure as well. No discharge letter or codeine. I was asked if I was lying about meds because I wanted to go home!!!ย  I feel sorry for nurses because of shortage etc but surely a pleasant manner is not too much to ask...The NHS is in a terrible state but plenty of caring staff hopefully still left

      I think you would know best Matron with your experience. ย During admission the staff just didn't seem to have time for anything and seemed rushed off their feet. ย
