hey Bank....I'm with Dirt on this. I picked up some new sweat pants to wear the first few days, never put em' on. I just wore regular gym shorts, flip-flops and T-shirts.....taped the cath tube to my leg, put the bag in a nice little canvas shopping type bag and I was walking down the street.
I did sleep in the recliner for the first three, four days or so....my girlfriend stayed with me for three days....I took one Depends pad with me when I had the cath removed, not a big issue for myself either....you'll do fine.
While waiting, have some fun..do some stuff you really like to do, have a little sex....but above all dont get too anxious about the process(I know that's easy to say, we all for the most part did)
the waiting game is the hardest.......you do great my brother. Hang in!
