Hi and welcome to our little board. As for getting ready I made sure lots of things where done ahead of time to make sure I didn't have to worry about things during my recovery. I made sure all our bills where paid up. I also made sure that me and my boyfriend had plenty of clean laundry since we do not have a washer and dryer. I also went food shopping a few days before and bought lots of prepared meals and microwave meals since you will not feel up to cooking. As for easy clothing my mum bought me some cheap sports bras at TJ MAXX before surgery so if I ruined them it wasn't a big deal, also maxi pads in between my bra and my skin helped my stitches not get irritated. I also lived in my boyfriends zip front hoodies since they where easy to get easy to get on and off with out using my arms. I took two weeks off from work and all though it tired me out
