I loved my binder. I got it from the nurse that took care of me.
I used it for about 5-7 days.
It really helped with my stitches, especially when I coughed to clear my throat after the surgery.

Good Luck!

I had LAVH 9 days ago and my binder has been my best friend! It isn't mandatory with LAVH but I would HIGHLY recommend it. I am usually a size 2 but with swelling post op I have needed all the support I can get and the supportive undies are just too painful against the incision. Im still wearing the stretchy ones from hospital with the binder I got from this site, also the ice packs in it were wonderful, although my incisions are small the bruising was not and the ice felt so nice.
Also I recommend getting a stool softener called colace, its a bit pricey but dr. recommended for a reason.
