Swelly belly band?

Hi there,
I would like opinions on purchasing one of these. Did you buy one? Did it really help? Does it work better than an abdominal binder? Thanks for your help! (only 9 days left, I am so nervous I have not slept in two days)

I would say it depends a lot on the type of surgery you are having. I had and LSH and didn't need one. Although I think I have seen other women who have had the same type of surgery as me and did use one. Maybe it also depends on how much other stuff is being done at the same time.

I did buy one. Though i didn't use it alot, it did help in the beginning. I helped with the pain and I felt like it kept me together, so to speak!

I bought one and still use it occasionally. I keep it in the fridge and if I overdo it and get achy in my tummy, it is very soothing. I'd encourage you to get one. I didn't 'wear' it alot, but I used it alot while on the couch lying down. The coolness made my incision area numb and it felt great. Good luck and your Hyster Sisters are rooting for you!

Thanks! I did end up buying one, so maybe I will be able to post after my surgery and help some others out!
Thanks again!
