swelly belly binder vs abdominal binder

I have a curious question. What is the difference between the swelly belly binder and the abdominal binder? Was looking to order something for after surgery?

I have both. The swelly belly binder is filled with a gel like substance. You soak it in cold water and it sort of swells up. It is used in place of an ice pack and helps to reduce the swelling.

The ab binder is to be worn under your clothing for support- sort of like an adjustable girdle. I have not worn it yet as I have not left the house but I can tell it will really help in holding me in while I am out and about and help me feel like my tummy is protected somewhat.

I have the ab binder and really like it ....I wear it most of the time when I go out ...it really helps to feel your tummy is protected.....and it supports your tummy too ...my doctor suggested wearing it during my healing time ....which I still do...

The ab binder is wonderful for support when you go out of the house, even around the house. The swelly belly binder is fabulous for cooling down a hot and swollen abdomen, when you are at home and can be generally inmodest.

Where did you get your ab binder. A couple of people mentioned that they took one home from the hospital with them. Do the hospitals normally "give" them to you?

The hospital will most likely give you the abdomimal binder. I love mine. It supports my tummy enough that I could actually sleep on my side sooner, and prevents the jelly in my swelly belly from jiggling when I move about.
