We often hear from hysterectomy patients: I felt like my belly was going to fall off. Or, I needed to grab my belly as I moved.

Wear an abdominal binder from day one, over your bandage. You will find it helps you to get in and out of bed, in and out of the car and even as you turn or adjust in bed. The binder will provide gentle support and compression, often resulting in easier recovery for you.

The abdominal binder carried at HysterectomyStore.com, is perfectly designed for a woman’s shape. It is designed so it doesn’t roll or twist.
