Getting up and down from your bed may be a challenge. In fact, you might get into bed for a rest and when it’s time to get up, you may be stuck! Maybe you ring a bell to request room service to help you up. This is one idea!
The better option, though, provides you with independence so that you can get up and down whether you are recovering from your hysterectomy alone – or with family nearby.
We suggest getting up by rolling to your side and pushing up carefully with your arms. This takes the pressure off of direct use of your abdominal muscles.
There is nothing worse than a binder that doesn’t hug your curves and stay in place when you need it to be gently snug on your tummy. Our Abdominal binder is designed with darts in the back to be shaped to fit – keeping it in place so it doesn’t roll down or slide around.
Why an abdominal binder for hysterectomy recovery?
Compression after a hysterectomy (laparoscopic or open abdominal surgery), myomectomy, c-section, appendectomy, hernias, tummy tuck is helpful to your recovery!
Our binders provide support directly to your tummy and back, allowing you to move with less pain and greater mobility. Compression aides to reduce recovery time. Our abdominal binders provide incision support, help prevent tearing, and make it easier to get out of bed, move and walk.

We are often asked if the Cold/Hot pack can be placed between the abdominal binder and your tummy. The answer is simple – YES!
In fact, before the Pocket binder was created, we often suggested placing the cold pack next to the skin (wrapped in a cloth) with the abdominal binder snuggly placed around the abdomen. It works – providing cool relief to tender incisions while providing gentle compression overall.
We think you will agree – its a great way to use your abdominal binder!
