SHARING IS CARING
I'm heading back to work soon. Is there anything to help me with my sensitive, tired belly? It seems by the end of the day, my belly is more tired and sore.
After abdominal surgery the tummy is left sore and tender, even after the incision has healed. Your stomach muscles must find their way back to the normal place while you go on with your life.
The HysterSisters Store
has several items to help soothe and protect your tummy.
This content was written by staff of HysterSisters.com by non-medical professionals based on discussions, resources and input from other patients for the purpose of patient-to-patient support.
- Panty Girdles
You might have some of these in your underwear drawer already. Also known as "granny panties," they have lycra in them to provide more support. They fit snug across the tummy, helping to hold in the stomach when the muscles are weak. There are several options at the HysterSisters Store, some basic, some enhanced.
- Post Op Panty
This panty is the first of its kind. It supports the tummy muscles and reduces tenderness and swelling with compression, and it speeds recovery and reduces scarring with a layer of medical grade silicone. You'll definitely want to try this one!
- Abdominal Binder
This is an elastic, stretchy wrap that velcros into place after being wrapped around and around the abdomen, similar to an ace bandage for a sprained ankle. The latest generation of the Perfect Pocket Abdominal Binder in the HysterSisters Store comes with two insertable cool packs to help soothe your wound.
- Tummy Pillow
A tummy pillow is good to have to put between you and your seatbelt or desk, to hold against your tummy while you laugh or cough, or anything else that will make you more comfortable.
