Nighties are better than pyjamas, as they don't rub the wound. I had an EMCS so wasn't prepared for that. My DH got kicked out about 10pm, and I was in two nights after my CS (which was in the evening), which I think is pretty standard.

I was in 2 nights after lunch time elcs. It was open visiting for xp and standard visiting hours for everyone else they were quite strict wouldn't let my mum in until visiting when xp went AWOL

Maybe too late for you or your planning on co sleeping but I have found this to be my miracle find, am so glad I got it.
