Hi Big One - Kziz is right -- have some "tighty-whiteys" on hand too. After surgery, your husband may need the extra support -- kind of like a jock-strap thing. I was a boxer shorts wearer before surgery but switched to the "Fruit-of-the-Loom" tighties after surgery.
Sadly, according to my 13-year-old son and his best friend, wearing "Fruit-of the-Loom" is like totally, er, weird.
But it works for me.
Best to ya,
