Post Op Pillows & Clothes

Here are two postop hints:

My incisions are very tender and sensitive. I learned quickly to use only the softest materials against my tummy.

Pillows for your tummy: I found that the most comfortable ones are little throw pillows stuffed with goose feathers. Put a flannel pillow case over it if the cover is made of a rough fabric. The softer, the better.

Clothes: Soft comfy pj tops are just as important as the bottoms. I found that fleece tops without zippers or buttons all the way down are most comfortable. Nothing should rub against your incisions.

Robes: A belted robe can be uncomfortable if the belt is at the same level as your incision. Zippered robes can also rub against the incision. I used a fleece top or a belted robe--without tying the belt.
