    Year ago August 26, 2010 I too had double mastectomy. I found that either pjs or gowns that opened from the front worked best for me because of the drain tubes. Also she's not going to be able to lift her arms over her head. Hope this works for her also . Stay strong you will make it through this

    My hospital provided me with a surgical bra that had clasps for all my drains. If her hospital doesn't have these they can be purchased. Also zip up sweatshirts and camisoles.
