Exclamation What i'm allowed under the gown?

Hi there, i'm having surgery Monday to repair my deviated septum and to remove some bone fragments. And I was wondering what I would be wearing under the hospital gown for this kind of surgery? I was told to wear loose fitting clothing, but i'm nervous about removing any panties or bra, even my pj bottoms, I really don't want the doctors to see my bare bum or anything.

I am sure they will let you keep your underwear on. They should give you a hospital gown so you won't get blood, lotion etc on your clothes, so nobody will see your bum. Everybody is very careful and respectful, and there is no need to see any of you below the neck. Good luck with your surgery, Sera

They usually let you leave your panties on but to be sure, you should call the surgery center/hospital and ask. Each one is different. And I'm sure they've seen plenty of bums before! But you will have a hospital gown to wear for sure.

Thanks so much! It's my first time ever having surgery, or even having a gown on, so i'm just a bit nervous. ^^
