Belly binder or no belly binder?

I'm 6 days post op and I feel pretty good with the exception of feeling like I have to hold my stomach constantly! I wasn't given an abdominal binder at the hospital. Are there pros and cons to a binder? I have to keep my sweat pants pulled up over my stomach to keep my incision sites from getting snagged. It feels like I could use the support of a binder.

I used the binder that I bought on here for about 2 weeks post op. It helped so much! I've had 3 c-sections and wish I had the binder after those. Ordered it on a Monday and it was here by Thursday. Would absolutely recommend it. Good luck sister

Re: Belly binder or no belly binder?

I was given a binder at the hospital and bought one from this site as well. Because I have inflamed nerves in my right thigh, my dr said to wait on the binder ( could be adding to inflammation). That can take up to 3 weeks.
I plan on wearing mine religiously after that. It helps hold your stomach when sleeping, especially turning over. On this site, some wear it immediately,others wait, while others not at all.
Ask your doctor. Hope this helps.

You will be so pleased with it! And sleep in it, you'll be able to roll over and not worry! Good luck 😄

I was going to suggest you order one. I came home from the hospital in one but I bought one ahead of time just in case. It feels so comfortable with the binder one.

Re: Belly binder or no belly binder?

I used a binder religiously for the first week, never took it off. I can't imagine what it would have felt like without it. Even with the binder my belly felt very heavy in the evenings and I still felt like my belly needed to be more supported. Now I use it when needed. I will probably use it when I go back to work too since I work in retail and might need the support.

My DH stopped and picked a binder up from Walgreen's for me because he knew the other one wouldn't be here until tomorrow. It was instant relief! I can't believe how much better I feel! I would tell every woman going through a hysterectomy to get one! I'm feeling a lot happier now!

Re: Belly binder or no belly binder?

I wore the binder 3 days straight after post op. I am now only wearing it when I am walking and if I feel like I need it when I sleep. It is a nice product to have for sure!
