Re: Belt

I still have mine on right now....8.5 weeks later. it's the one from this site though, not the huge one from the hospital. I had a vertical incision, and my belly is far from flat, so I like the support - even though the incision is all healed.

Re: Belt

Monday will be 4 weeks post op for me and I have not worn mines in over a week. I, too, purchased one from this site but when I asked my Dr. about his feelings on wearing them and he said that I should try to strengthen my abs on my own. I like the support that it gives me and I plan to wear it occasionally when my tummy begins to feel heavy but I plan to try to only wear when I really feel like I need it.
