Is it OK to wear a girdle?

Is it o.k to wear a girdle? I am 11 days out of surgery - abd. hyster. My belly is so big and I am going to a wedding in a couple of weeks. The dress I was planning on wearing will look awful with this big belly. I'm not sure if it is o.k. to wear something to hold it in?

Is it OK to wear a girdle?

debbiefeg...Yes you can wear a girdle thing to suck in that gut. I had a wedding to go to 2 weeks after my TAH and the same thing, I had this big ole stomach and the outfit on me looked horrible, so I wore a girdle thing and it worked. It was a little uncomfortable, by the end of the night. Just take it easy and good luck to you.

Is it OK to wear a girdle?

Some women find wearing something binding to be helpful and not too uncomfortable. I was one, however, who could not wear anything binding. It was quite uncomfortable. You may want to wear one around the house for a couple of days and see how it feels before going on a long outing with one on. Should you wear the girdle to the wedding, you may want to stash a pair of regular panties in your purse just in case you get uncomfortable.

Like Kim, I can't stand anything tight on my belly. I've always worn a light one under my work suits. I hope I can when I return. Prior to surgery, my tummy was flat (not any more), but I've always had scary hips. Small children would run in fear!
