I Had Major Surgery- How Loungewear Helped Me Heal


After the surgery, in recovery.

Let me tell you, double jaw surgery is no joke. In case you don't know what double jaw surgery is, it's when a surgeon cuts both your upper and lower jaw bones and then places the bones in a new, ideal position using plates and screws. I was in the hospital for 24 hours and was given Dilaudid every 3-4 hours to keep me comfortable. But even with the pain medication, the first few weeks were tough. I had to sleep sitting up and drink liquid foods because I couldn't chew.

Not only could I not eat, but my face swelled up like a balloon, and I looked like Sloth from the Goonies. Definitely not feeling great at this point! After my surgery, I was exhausted and in a lot of pain. But the moment I slipped into those comfortable pants and button-up shirt, I felt immediately better. Not only was I more comfortable, but I also didn't have to worry about what I would wear. I felt like the only thing making me feel even remotely better was my outfit.
