How long to wear Belly Band Binder ?

Hi!

I would wear it as long as it makes you feel more comfortable. I myself switched from the belly binder to support panties (light to medium support work best for me) since they are less bulky, but here I am nearly 4 months on and wearing them again today! It made a real difference for me in helping to prevent swelly belly, and in reducing pain, so I don't care what anyone says, I just let my body tell me what it wants. At this stage it wants some support if I exercise vigorously or if I am going to spend the day on my feet. What I suggest is to try part of a day without it and see how you feel. You'll know if you want it back on, but if all feels fine you can do without it.

They put a binder on me in the recovery room as soon as I opened my eyes the nurse had me lift my pelvis and put it on me. I was addicted to my binder. I probably wore it too much but I wore it when I went back to work 6 weeks after surgery. I felt I needed extra support when I went to work and walking down stairs etc. Ask your doctor, but I dont think you can wear it too much!
