Abdominal Support

Hi all,

I'm having my TAH in about a month and I want to buy an abdominal support binder. I have some questions about the ones offered on this site.

There are two binders on this site. One that comes with cool packs and one that does not. Do I need both of them? Is one better than the other? Can I buy the one with the cool packs and just not use the cool pack and use it for abdominal support also?

Any advice/suggestions would be great.

Re: Abdominal Support

I'm having a TAH as well, on call for a date, and I purchased the one with the ice packs. I can't say what the difference is, but I can say the ice packs have already gotten use. LOL. Fell and sprained my wrist (don't ask, I'm an accident magnet and it's embarrassing) and I was glad to have the packs.

Re: Abdominal Support

I am a week post-op from a TAH, and I ordered the one off this site that does not have the ice packs... I have been wearing that thing since the day after my surgery (I used the one they gave me in the hospital the first day) well, with the exception of when it has gone through the wash. I love it, and would say it is well worth it!

Re: Abdominal Support

I had my hysterectomy 3 weeks ago and I bought the binder with the cool packs..totally worth every penny. I loved the ice packs it helped me out big time, and if you feel like heat would be better then cold the ice packs can also be heated up..it comes with two and when I was using one I had one in the freezer ready to go when the other one lost the cold feeling. Totally worth it, I would not have made it through the first few days with out it
