Preparing for Hysterectomy Recovery | What Will I Need?

From the Pre-Op Hysterectomy Articles List



My surgery is scheduled and I have no clue what I might need to purchase for use during my recovery. What do you suggest?


One product we think is the most important is the binder. The abdominal binder is worn snug across the abdomen. Most hospitals do not offer a binder to their laparoscopic hysterectomy patients. Some hospitals provide a binder to hysterectomy patients, but they don't fit well.

The HysterSisters have found that a binder is helpful no matter the kind of hysterectomy. The HysterSisters store has several abdominal binders available. One comes with a pocket to insert a cold pack (which comes with the Perfect Pocket Binder). Once you no longer need the cold support, you can remove it and use the binder without it. Another binder is pocketless and offers wonderful support too.

Another product you might consider, especially if you are prone to infection, is an antibiotic surgery soap to keep your incision clean.

A pair of support panties may be helpful once you are back in your clothes and getting back to normal activities. You can purchase lightweight support panties at Walmart or Target or at the HysterSisters Store.

Besides stocking up with books you want to read or photos you want to organize, consider where you will spend your time during the day. Refresh your "spot" with a lamp or a side table so you will have everything you need within easy reach.

Happy healing to you!
