I didn't care what kind of pillow I had as long as I had two for riding in the car, I had my LAVH right before xmas so lots of traveling. I needed one to sit on especially for the first 2-3 weeks any hard chair or car rides I had to have one for the belly and one for underneath.

Giselle, I had a 45 min ride home on the interstate. I used a pad in my panties. I turned it sideways and it helped buff out most everything. Plus, I held my hands on my belly for the whole ride. I was too nervous to lean my chair back, but, I did recline it a little so that the belt wasn't straining too tight. Still have to be safe y'know! Depending on the cut you get, you can probably do this as well. I had a horizontal bikini cut. I think it would work for a vertical incision too.

Trudy, I used pillows lined up in the bed with me. Hubby supported my back as well. I had a nice pillow wall goin' on!

Hubby wrapped & taped up a sheet in a nice little tummy pillow size to use as a splint. They had those in my military castle. Worked when I had to sneeze the first time really well!

Hi LadyDy, glad you made it to the site!
